MacBook Pro with Touch Bar does not have real function keys.
You can get around this problem in four ways:
1. Since function keys are displayed at the bottom of the MacWise window, you can click on them with the mouse.
2. If you hold down the Fn key, the function keys will appear temporarily on the Touch Bar if you have the following option set in your Keyboard Preferences...
Select System Preferences from the Apple Menu.
In System Preferences, choose Keyboard.
Change "Press Fn key to" Show F1,F2,etc. Keys
3. You can use the Option key in combination with number keys for function keys.
4. (Requires MacWise version 15.4 or later).
Select "Activate Touch Bar on Startup" from the Connection Menu.
Note: "Activate Touch Bar on Startup" menu item will only be available on Touch Bar MacBooks.
Now, each time you run MacWise, the FKEYS will appear in the Touch Bar and you do not need to hold down the Fn key.
