I want to set it so that my D key does ability 4, and also inventory 3, and my F key does ability 5, and also inventory 4. And respectively to do "take and retrieve items" on courier.

When I try to set D to ability 4, it will stay as take on crow, and F on ability 5 will stay as retrieve, but when I put D and F on inventory 3 and 4, it'll take D and F off of everything else, and only be used for the item slots. I plan on just not using slots 3 and 4 with active items on heroes with 4th and 5th abilities, such as doom, and I know it's possible because I've seen Sing Sing do it on Rubick, and he had D set on a Inventory slot for an item, as well as his stolen skill.

I assure you that you don't want to do this. You can turn off mirorring of abilities between courier and heroes if you'd like, go to Controls-->Abilities-->Courier. –  Decency Aug 3 '13 at 18:12
    
What you're looking for is called a macro. Some keyboards come with this built-in. If you don't have a keyboard that has that, you will need to look for a program that does that for you. –  SimonL Aug 3 '13 at 18:16
    
@close voter: that "duplicate" is literally the exact opposite of what the asker wants... –  Schism Aug 3 '13 at 19:10
    
i'm not looking for a macro. Schism gets what i'm saying. i'm looking for one button to do 2 things. i dont want one button to ACTIVATE two things that'd b a macro. i want my d to b my item 3. and f to be item for. because most people dont hav a 4th and 5th ability, and only hav the first 3 then ultimate. BUT ont he occasion that i play 5 or 6 skilled heroes, i just want to be able to move the active items off the 3rd and 4th slots, so i only use d and f for the items instead. all the while, i'd like d and f to be take and retrieve on the courier –  DazzlingUnicorn Aug 3 '13 at 19:16
    
That actually is a macro what you describe. It has nothing to do with doing or activating. A macro is about helping you do multiple and/or repetitive tasks whether that is simultaneously, at random times or at specific time intervals. You might want to look into "autohotkey" at first it looks quite challenging but with a bit of reading it is very easy to setup. –  Menno Gouw Aug 3 '13 at 19:42

I asked a similar question, and you can find the answer for both setting multiple keys to one action and one key to multiple actions in there.

Set 2 buttons to same action
