Q: After changing the Mac OS X Expose keys to dashes as instructed in the tutorial, the Expose keys -F9, F10, and F11- retain their Expose functions and override the Final Cut keyboard shortcuts. Why have the keys kept their original functions?
A: After setting the Expose Settings to dashes, go into the Mac OS X System Preferences and choose Keyboard. Once there, click on the Keyboard tab, then click to check the box "Use all F1, F2, etc. keys as standard function keys.” This should release F9, F10, and F11 from their Expose functions and allow them to be uses as editing keys in Final Cut.
