reassign shortcuts not working

Post by kohledfusion » Sat Apr 06, 2013 10:27 pm

Aloha All,
I've been out of the loop for a few years. I just downloaded 1.8.7 & am having a heck of a time re-assigning some of my shortcuts. Specifically I can't reassign Cmd+2 or Cmd+3. I am trying to get either one on Duplicate, but the Shortcut just plain old won't stick or give any indication in the Shortcut Assignment Window that my change has worked.

So, i put on my programmer hat & threw my old 2009 plist at 1.8.7 (made a few hacks to read correct version to 1.8.7). No luck.

Did something change or move since 2009 (v 1.8.4 i think) regarding where shortcuts are stored. Has Ilexsoft, or any user, made a cheat sheet of the plist key codes <key> mapping to their actual command names ( i.e.: <key>4-19</key> = Move)?

Thanks for any advice. Muscle memory is kicking in & my fingers are going for old shortcuts that I can't reassign - driving me a little bit batty.
