10.7: Keyboard shortcut to Documents folder in Open/Save dialogs Apps
Mac OS X has long had the Go menu in the Finder. Within it there has long been quick Finder access to folders. The shortcuts listed there have also been usable in Open/Save dialogs (with the exception that going to the Desktop in an Open/Save dialog is done with Command+D, not Command+Shift+D like is used in the Finder).

10.6 added the Documents folder to the Go menu. Oddly, though, its Command+Shift+O shortcut that could used in the Finder was not available in Open/Save dialogs. 10.7, though, corrects this and users can now use it to get to their Documents folder in any Open/Save dialog.

[crarko adds: I tested this, and it works as described.]

Command+Shift+D works fine in Open/Save dialogs

Yeah, plain old Command+D was news to me. I've been using Command-Shift-D in Open/Save dialogs ever since Cheetah.

Not sure why I've always thought it was only Command-D that worked in Open/Save dialogs, but thanks for pointing out the availability of Command-Shift-D.

I've a MBP4,1: no problem with secondary click made by 2-finger tap, even without your command. But there was another way to do secondary click (touching trackpad with one finger and click on the button): this way doesn't work anymore, even after your suggestion.
