Keyboard shortcuts to various System Preferences
Authored by: palahala on Apr 21, '09 12:31:27AM

...and then Apple makes things slightly more confusing by stating, for example, that Safari Zoom is mapped to Cmd + while also accepting Cmd = :-)

I still wonder why Apple replaced the  symbol for "cmd" on the new keyboards, but did not print "opt" next to the ⌥ on the option key as well -- now people who are using "alt" to refer to that key can no longer be blamed ;-) Of course, as the ⌥ is listed in the menus, it cannot be replaced by "opt" on the keyboard (in fact, usage in the menus is apparently why the symbol ⌘ for command is used, as Jobs did not like all the apple symbols in the menus). But then: why don't the keyboards show ⌃ for the control key as well...?
