I hope someone can help.
I have my key configured as follows. This is essentially the same setting as the default for Mac Book Pros 2012 – 2015.
I am a developer and I use code editors; so it's very important to me that my function keys match the prominent citizens on my keyboard. I also want to access the control band for controlling the screen and volume with the help of the fn keys (Otherwise, how can I easily access these functions?).
So now, how can I access the "App Controls"? Should I be able to configure say fn + option to give them to me?
Finding this very frustrating makes the touchbar even more useless if I can only have the settings I'm used to with a "Real" keyboard. It seems to me that I have to give up something to use the specific controls at the touch bar application.
