Toggle iTunes' window state with a keystroke
Authored by: gilburns on Mar 01, '04 11:59:12AM
Actually, Command+Control+Z would be a better choice for iTunes. The behavoir of the zoom for iTunes is different depending on the state of the option key.

When the option key is not used, clicking the zoom button changes the window state between the full window and the small control window. When the option key is held down, the window zooms like the finder windows, changing the window size to fit the screen.

By using Command+Option+Z iTunes sees the option key as down, and the window just changes size, it does not toggle between full and controls.

Toggle iTunes' window state with a keystroke

Do you know if Command+Shift+Z has any conventional assignments? I've been using that key shortcut for Zoom for some time now and the only conflict I've had is with the Redo command in Mail. Since I rarely have to use Redo, and since for some reason Zoom takes precedence over Redo I have no problem. Are there any other conflicts anyone can foresee?

Thanks

I tried using Control-Shift-Z for "Zoom" and Control-Shift-A for "Bring All to Front" for All Applications in the 10.3.2 Keyboard Shortcuts tab of the Keyboard & Mouse System Preference Pane. Neither seems to have any effect. Must short-cuts set there contain the Command key as well to function?

Hmm... That doesn't seem to have any effect either. Does one have to log out or quit apps first for these new shortcuts to work?

Argh! The newly-defined shortcuts have no effect in a subsequently-launched Cocoa app. What gives?? I can't afford to mess around with logging out & back in right now....
