Assign shortcuts to contextual menu items

Screenshot Shortcuts The contextual menu of Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard’s Finder is less cluttered than in earlier system releases. All additional items are now hidden in the “More…” sub-menu, unfortunately including the Automator workflows. This adds a lot of mousing or clicking to using your own Finder workflows, e.g., for adding files to your DEVONthink Pro database. But, no reason for acts of desparation: The freeware application Shortcuts allows you to equip any contextual menu item with your own keyboard shortcut.

    I would like to have a shortcut for

    Services -> DevonThink Pro -> Append Plain Note

    Is that possible?

    If I could, I would choose “Command+!” combination for this, because of the existing shortcut “Command+@” for “Append Riich Note”. (On my keyboard “@” sits next to “!”)

    Sorry for the typo. It should be: “Rich” not “Riich” 😉

  3. You can alter the shortcuts for Services menu commands by using Service Scrubber. You can find a link to it on our Download page.
