Photoshop: F-keys (function keys) don't work in adjustment curves layer

I can't use any of my F-key shortcuts I've set up when I'm in adjustment curves layer in CS5 x64 on Windows 7. I have a lot of brush shortcuts assigned to these keys I need to access and they no longer work. When I press an F-key, I get the eye dropper tool instead.

Hi Andrew,

Thanks for reporting this. It looks like the function keys automatically activate the targeted adjustment tool in either the Curves or Hue/Saturation adjustment panels. I've gone ahead and logged this in our bug database.

What happens if you go to the keyboard shortcuts in photoshop and assign a shortcut to the Targeted Adjustment Tool?

Wow Dan, I just tried that and it seemed to fix the problem! It looks like the problem has to do with the fact that the Targeted Adjustment Tool is by default an unassigned shortcut.
