The Super-Secret Mac Keyboard Shortcuts Almost No One Knows About
Beyond the menu bar keyboard shortcuts and the ones you can add in System Preferences, there are a set of keyboard shortcuts called KeyBindings that you can use when writing. These customizable keyboard commands can be used to move around in text, manipuate selections and even insert frequently-used words and phrases.
Thank you Gary! That took some work but I have eliminated one tedious bit of typing that I need every day.
Very good advice on how to use secret shortcuts. I needed it to save time.
Thank you Gary
Hi! Great stuff! Was really exited for this but unfortunately I can't get it to work. My guess is that the commands "insertText" for example, has different names in my Macs system, since I am Norwegian. So the question is, do you (or anyone else) have any clue to where I could find a list of these commands BUT in Norwegian. I tried a lot to swap out my self, but since I´m honestly not sure if this is the problem, or if I made another mistake (I don't think so), I just have so much patience :/
Henry: I would assume that the commands are always "insertText" and such, and don't change depending on the language. I would continue to try to look at other causes for the issues. Maybe try one of the very simple examples I show.
Thank you, Gary, for the very well-explained tutorial. I wondered if there are any key binding to change the color of a word or a selection in much the same way as you showed how to change upper/lower case words. I did find something on the topic, but the documentation seems old, and there are no implementation examples.
