Create keyboard shortcuts for stubborn Cocoa apps
Authored by: jocamero on Feb 15, '09 03:42:57PM
Anyone have any luck doing this with RealVNC Enterprise? (viewer doesn't require a key)

Upon opening Interface Builder it appears most menu items (that I want to assign a keyboard value) are already assigned to the appropriate value and enabled.

i.e. Command - Q is set to Quit and enabled, yet when you open the application, the keyboard shortcut doesn't work, and the keyboard shortcuts no longer appear in the application's drop down menus. Previous builds of RealVNC had this functionality.

Specifically I'd like Command - Q to quit the app and Commmand - N to open a new connection window. Any ideas?

> RealVNC Enterprise? (viewer doesn't require a key)

A bit off-topic and just for the record: the sole fact that the viewer does not need a key to run, does not imply that it is freeware. As far as I know, the Mac OS X VNC Viewer may only be used to connect to VNC Enterprise Server installations, which do need a license.

Note that Leopard has a VNC compatible client built-in (Finder, Cmd-K, type an address starting with vnc://). Other free alternatives would be Chicken of the VNC, JollysFastVNC, and probably some others. RealVNC also offers a cross-platform Java viewer.
