The F9 hotkey for screenshots cannot be overridden in blueprints. Even removing the hotkey from the Editor Preferences>Keyboard Shortcuts list does not prevent the shortcut from being used in packaged projects.

Regression? (No), issue (does) occur on 4.10.4

Steps to Reproduce
  1. Open Editor (third person blueprint)
  2. Open third person character blueprint
  3. Create event "f9"
  4. Add a print string node to event
  5. Compile>Save blueprint
  6. Save level
  7. Open File>Package>Windows>Win64
  8. Open WindowsNoEditor in saved filepath
  9. Open project .exe file
  10. Press f9


Screenshots are taken, no print string appears. You can find the screenshots in \WindowsNoEditor\PROJECTNAME\saved\screenshows\WindowsNoEditor


No screenshot is taken, print string text 'Hello' appears in top left of screen
