What shortcuts, exactly, are you having trouble with?
> So far I’ve tried:
• check/uncheck the standard function box on keyboard prefs
What is the exact name of the preference that you're referring to here?
Have you tried turning off the Use System Shortcut Keys preference in the General categoru in After Effects preferences?
I’m not sure what you mean...
Lets say I have a document open and I want to scale an object – I first have to ‘Add Scale Keyframe’ if I want to do this I have to go to the menu every time rather than just press the F9 key. no combinations of F9+shift +cntrl +cmd work.
I think this is a conflict between the way a Macs function keys are set by default and what AE wants to use them for and I just can’t resolve it. The preferences I was referring to was the Mac System prefs.
Thanks for the reply
F9 converts a selected keyframe temporal interpolation. IOW, F9 toggles between ease and no ease.
If you want to set a scale keyframe press Option + S. From there on every time you change the scale value you'll get a new keyframes. If there is no keyframe under the CTI pressing Option + S (or A for anchor point, or T for Opacity, or P for position) will set a new one. If there is a keyframe under the CTI then pressing Option + S will remove the keyframe.
i had the same problem, please switch off all the adobe programs and restart your after effects. I hope this will help

Hi, you asked your question 7 years ago, but i had the same problem and I could resolve it. So I´m going to tell you my solution.
There are some apps in windows that could use the shortcuts like shift+f9 or just f9 too... When I realized it, I closed some open apps in backgrownd like "Teamviewer" make sure to close all those apps that you don´t need to use at the moment. So it theorically should enable the function again to after effects. It worked for me.
Sorry for my bad english, best wishes from Argentina!
