keyboard command to run applescript

how do you assign a key to run a function in an application like itunes?

i want to assign a function key to each script.

i know the function keys are used by the os but i believe they can be disabled

also can this be done for automator scripts as well?

I use Xkeys (freeware)

I use FastScripts:
It’s cheap and offers lots of cool features, as it is specifically concibed for AS execution (eg, cancel running script, save changes in own script, etc.).

I use both Butler and Spark

do any of the apps have the ability to assign keys to script by appliction.


in itunes ‘f1’ will do script ‘a’

but in finder ‘f1’ will do its normal function

thanks for all the help and great post.

Try Butler for doing that.
