Can't assign clipping shortcut Thread Tools Search this Thread Display Modes
I have two computers I've got OmniFocus installed on (both running latest Leopard) and on one of them I've assigned Ctrl-G as my clipping shortcut and it works great. I don't remember having to unassign this from the system preferences as a shortcut for something else.

I just installed the other one this week, and when I went to assign the same shortcut, OmniFocus tells me it's already taken as a system-wide shortcut for something else. But I have no clue WHAT it's assigned to--it doesn't seem to do anything, and it doesn't show up on the System Preferences Keyboard Shortcut settings anywhere, so I couldn't reassign it if I wanted to.

Anybody know what that shortcut is, and why it would exist on one Mac and not another? Any idea how to override it? Thanks...

Seriously, no one has any reply to this? I thought I was going to get slammed with responses telling me how stupid and trivial my question was.
It is possible that its used as a shortcut by a third party application's Service, especially if you have different apps installed on the two machines (check your Services menu to see if that is the case).

Anyway, I go for broke with mine and use ctrl-option-cmd-space to do my quick entry into OmniFocus... not much chance of any conflict there (I hope!) ;)
There is an issue with PPC Macs and setting certain clipping shortcut combinations.

Is one of these macs running a PPC processor?

Yes, actually--the one that works fine with Ctrl-G is an Intel, the one that doesn't is a PPC. I've tried gobs of key combinations and hardly anything's available, so it's definitely a problem somewhere. Any workaround you're aware of? Thanks...
One workaround is to use a different key combination, of course. I recommend cmd-shift-, (aka cmd-<) which corresponds nicely to the clipping shortcut hardwired in OmniOutliner (cmd-shift-. or cmd->). It works with both Intel and PPC, and Omni's CEO uses it, so I think it will keep working for the foreseeable future :-)
