I am playing ADOM right now and under F1 button there is very aggressive tactic, which is extremaly useful when you are fighting on distance. Right now I can't use it, because help dialog pops up. How can I turn it off?

  1. Launch System → Preferences → Keyboard Shortcuts
  2. Locate the line that says "Launch help browser"
  3. Click where it says "F1"
  4. Hit the Backspace key.
  5. It should now say "Disabled"

Yeah, it was already disabled (I guess I must have disabled it manually in the console). But the window still appears. There is no F1 in keyboard shortcuts and yet help pop ups still. – gruszczy Aug 16 '10 at 21:16
Try mapping F1 to "Toggle magnifier" under Accessibility in Keyboard Shortcuts, then unmap "Toggle magnifier" (it should say "Disabled"). – Li Lo Aug 16 '10 at 21:29
