Make Hotkeys NOT Global

I use hotkeys in OBS for one-handed operation while operating another machine with a few touchscreens. The hotkeys work great while I'm in OBS, and they let me switch scenes and do other things very quickly. The problem is, since they are designed to be fast (basically turning my keyboard into a controller), I don't use modifier keys (Ctrl, Alt, Shift, etc.). Still, everything works great...UNTIL I am in Facebook typing a description of my live video, and the number keys 1, 2, 3, 4 and the backslash key \ cause OBS to react.

I'd like a way to set certain hot keys to NOT be global.

Another option that would be convenient would be to set single key hotkeys in the ASCII range to *default* to not be global.
