Keyboard shortcuts and the ellipsis character
Authored by: wordsofwisedumb on Oct 14, '08 03:56:46PM

I have found that the ellipsis generally means there is another dialog box that will be triggered by that menu item. For example "Private Browsing..." in Safari opens a box asking if you are sure you would like to enable Private Browsing. If you enter a keyboard shortcut for "Private Browsing" (without the ellipsis) it creates a new menu item that does not trigger the dialog box when it is selected.
