You’ll need to install a third-party keymapping software on your computer. Some keyboards come with such software, like those for gaming because they have additional function keys. Webflow doesn’t allow you to change keyboard shortcuts.

Thank you Sam.

For anyone else reading this interested in MacroKeys on webflow, set your keymapping as follows

FIRST ‘escape’ key THEN 40ms THEN {action_button_key}

All macro instances must hit ‘escape’ key first for it works to switch to desired panel selectors.
