Key Commands don't work first time

I made some custom key commands using the build in key command features in mac but dorico won’t perform the key command unless I first find the command with the mouse and click it. Once I have done that the key command works great. Is there a way to fix that? the key commands I have set are “Select/Deselect bottom notes, Select/Deselect top notes, Beam together, Split beam, Select only, Deselect only”. I have mapped them to my function keys F1, F2, F3, F4, F5, F6, F7. I have moved only conflicted key commands in Dorico to different function keys

Make sure in the Mac preferences that those keys are not used for anything else system-wide…

They aren’t. All of the key commands work after I manually click using the mouse to execute one. I don’t have to click each one till they all work
