10.6: Gather Finder Items with a new Service
Authored by: Frederico on Mar 14, '11 11:38:27PM

AGL (nee CyberStudio) has several hidden, undocumented keyboard shortcuts that, because they do not exist in Menubar menus, are not modifiable by OS X Keyboard Shortcuts; nor are they included in the built-in Keystroke Editor from Adobe; worse, a few of these hidden keystrokes were stepped on by OS X System global keystrokes (that Adobe failed to note had been deprecated and warned of two years prior).

MenuMaster is the only fast, easy, reliable method to "inject" shortcut overrides at a System level; most notably, MM allows you to actually REMOVE keystrokes altogether; e.g., the OS X global Preferences keystroke is Command-[comma]; MM actually lets you *delete* this keystroke altogether, thus allowing the Command-[comma] keystroke to be passed through to AGL core code.

Alas, while MM is out in beta form for Snow Leopard, it's pretty unreliable for production/full-time use; and it took Unsanity something like 18 months to get it that far, and it has not been updated in nearly 6 months since; so I have zero confidence it will, one, become stable ever, and two, be updated for Lion. Though that point is moot, apparently; as even if Unsanity comes through, Apple seemingly has deprecated Rosetta, and all carbon & PowerPC apps will die, anyway.

As I said, I do not develop for Web anymore, but maintain dozens of (low-tech, but fully functional) sites created in AGL, and, as the maintenance pays little, I have no real desire to not only buy new software, but learn said software, either.

I am *PRAYING* for a VM solution with Lion that allows me to run not only SL, but, even better, 10.5 Leopard in VM; which was the last version that AGL *and* MM lived together reliably. Heck, I probably will even drop back to Tiger, if not Panther, given that all I intend to run in a VM would be AGL 6 and Photoshop (6 or 7), Illustrator (10) or CS3 (suite) for short amounts of time.
