10.5: Add keyboard shortcuts to Services menu items
Authored by: Michael_S on Mar 04, '09 07:40:22PM

It seems not well known that both of the sample tasks can be achieved by drag&drop of the selection (be it files or a text snippet) onto Dock icons. Mail is present in the Dock by default, and I added TextEdit for this specific reason.

I use shortcuts frequently, too, but when the selection is involved, it was most likely created with the mouse, and with drag&drop one doesn't have to dig into the Services menu.

Indeed, many people seem unaware that the examples can be achieved via the Dock. For my use, though, I prefer the keyboard shortcut method for two reasons: 1) it's faster and 2) I always keep the Dock hidden.
