    Opening console with alternate hotkey

    The console works as intended with the default hotkey (`/~) but after playing HoN I got used to select courier directly with the same key.
    I tried changing the console hotkey with "bind <key> toggleconsole", it actually works to close the console, but you can never open it again with the key you just bound. Nonetheless, the tilde still works to open it if you didn't bind it to something else.

    you need to spec a game or play a game then your toggleconsole key works

    bind on "F11" always works for me^^

    f11 works, BUT TWO THINGS NEED TO APPLY HERE:

    Number 1: You can only open the console when you are IN-GAME or when you SPECTATE a match! There is NO other way to open it (yet)!
    Number 2: Dota 2 needs to close WITHOUT an error. With an error the changes wont apply!

    If your Dota 2 crashes all the time, go to: X:\Program Files\Steam\SteamApps\common\dota 2 beta\dota\cfg make a autoexec.cfg with an editor and next enter "bind f11 toggleconsole" or what ever key you would like. Then you will have those changes applied because it is saved in the .cfg
