Description

I have a shorter keyboard with an fn key (Revoltec K107). To activate some keys (e.g. F11 and F12) I have to press an Fn key in combination.

For some reason pressing the fn key triggers in lighttable the function "sticky preview with focus detection". Even if there is no short cut connected to it.
When I set up a short cut for it, I get "sticky preview" (I assume), which is one above the "sticky preview with focus detection".

When I press the fn key on my Dell XPS-13. The behaviour is normal.

The expected behaviour would be, that nothing happens.
