    I have just got a razer blackwidow chroma stealth and love it to bits already.

    I havent had a keyboard with macro keys before so could do with a little help.

    I want to bind them to stuff in overwatch (emotes and things) but overwatch doesnt recognise them and therefore cannot bind them to actions in the options menu.

    I guess many games do the same. What work arounds do you guys use?

    Well if anyone else is having the same issue I have figured out a work around for this.

    Open synapse and open the keyboard>customise tab, click the M1 key and select "keyboard fuction" then press the 1 on the num pad as these keys are very rarely used on games. (sorry 10 keyless users you will have to find other keys that arent used on games).
    Then in games you can bind the num pad 1 to whatever function/action you want and it will work with the m1 key too.

    Rince and repeat with the other macro keys.

    Now you have all your emotes and stuff closer to your movement hand :)

    The other way you could have done this was to just find out which normal keyboard keys your emotes and other things are already set to in Overwatch, and have your macro keys assigned to double those normal keys.
