Canceling Key F1 for Help? acad 2013 MEP

I have reassigned the f1 key in previous versions using methods described by Lynn Allen and others. ( I reassign f1 to match prop )

But since upgrading to 2013 ,using the same methods the help box continues to pop up. The match prop macro becomes active but I must minimize the help dialog box. How can this be turned off? I notice that in the CUI shortcut key assignment box all the current shortcuts are checked with a green checkmark. The f1 key has a red x . No way to change this?

http://cadtips.cadalyst.com/misc-user-tools/help-me-stop-pressing-f1-accidentally works regardless of versions, and has no real good argument against not doing it since you obviously never wish to use it :smileyhappy:

If something I wrote can be interpreted two ways, and one of the ways makes you sad or angry, I meant the other one.

Not very elegant but I used a paper clip on mine.  Works great but gets comments. :-)
