Where to change the shortcut to Edit the metadata of the currently selected field

In the booklist, when I am wanting to edit the metadata of the currently selected field, the shortcut is F2, but on my keyboard I have to type Fn+F2. I'd rather change it to something else. In preferences -> Shortcuts, I can't find the shortcut, or anything linked to F2 at all. How can I change this to a different shortcut?

Thanks!

You cant, its not customizable. That shortcut comes from Qt which in turn gets it from the underlying platform. Most keyboards that use fn buttons in dual mode have a "fn lock" function to avoid having to press Fn. Use it.
