OF Quick Entry keyboard shortcut is ignored Thread Tools Search this Thread Display Modes
Hi Folks!
Weird problem:
After changing some keyboard shortcuts in my system the OF keyboard shortcut for quick entry is ignored. I tried to reset it from the of OF config menu, from the keyboard shortcuts in the systemconfiguration, i changed the shortcuts keys, and dozens of things more.
The shortcut for adding things to OF is shown in the shortcuts screen of the system configuration but is ignored by all applications. In the services menus of all application the OF service is shown without a keyboard shortcut.
Any tips or ideas are appreciated.

Update: This issues seems to be related to the localization. I think the localized versions conflict with the entries in the services menu...

For me I had also this problem many times. After a lot of shortcuts, i've found this one and it works : shif + option + command + =
Thanks for the reply.
It seems the issue is not the shortcut itself but the services menu entry. the service uses an english service name "OmniFocus: Send to Inbox" but the german OF localization waits for "OmniFocus: Zur Inbox schicken" or something similar which is the german translation. Therefore OF no longer reacts to the english service call.
At least thats what i'm guessing from my testing so far.... :-(
Errhm, things just work now. I've no idea why. I did no relevant update in the last 24 hours.
The shortcut works, the menu entry is reacted upon by OF, everything is nice and shiny.

There seems to be some kind of software gremlin playing tricks on me on my machine... :-)
Hi Silvan
Which shortcuts works ? The ones I gave to you ?
I know sometimes software seems to be more lively than we can imagine.
Any Shortcut i configure works now, this did not happen before. Also the shortcut is correctly shown behind the Send to Inbox service menu entry which did not happen before...

One of the most important experiences in computer science is to realize that these things definitely do not work deterministic.
