Keyboard shortcut for toggling sequential/parallel? Thread Tools Search this Thread Display Modes
Is there a keyboard shortcut for switching a project's type between sequential and parallel? This would save me a trip to the mouse. Thanks!
 
Unfortunately, I don't think so, at least not that I know of. But there should be. It's something I've been secretly wishing for a long time. :-)

Cool, thanks for verifying that. Let's keep our fingers crossed for something like command-option-' as toggling project "type".

Can't you bind an applescript to a keyboard shortcut with the Keyboard & Mouse preferences? If so, you could use this script:

Curt, don't you need to update that copyright date?

Unfortunately, I don't think the Keyboard & Mouse preferences can assign keyboard shortcuts to items in the Scripts menu (c'mon Apple, help us out here!). However, a third party utility like FastScripts would probably do the trick.

I use, and highly recommend, FastScripts myself but it is possible to assign shortcuts to scripts using the Keyboard & Mouse preferences. If one enables the 'Show Scripts menu in menu bar' option in the AppleScript Utility, then those menu items (scripts) can be assigned a shortcut with Keyboard & Mouse.

Also, in addition to FastScripts any utility such as LanuchBar, Quicksilver, Butler, QuicKeys, etc., can assign a trigger to a script. I believe every Mac user really should have one, or more, of the above-mentioned utilities.

Really? I have the Scripts menu enabled but I could have sworn I tried assigning keyboard shortcuts before and it didn't work. I'll have to try again. Thanks, Greg!

And pi is still a nice round value of 3, right? :-)
