    I want to delete some keys to be able to use them but Screenflow doesnt allow me.

    It is silly to “customize” if you can not erase key you never use, AND!!! it will be useful to know where is the “conflicted key” asigned instead of only show a admiration sign.

    I hope that in the near future we can really customize.
