Create a zip archive via a keyboard shortcut
Authored by: Skully on Dec 29, '04 10:24:45AM

How about a keyboard shortcut for arrange by name? I have tried this using the shortcuts tab and can't get it to work

Assigning keyboard shortcuts to sub menus
Authored by: Dunkin on Dec 29, '04 11:19:42AM

This works for any sub menu and is just a clarification of the Apple keyboard shortcut creation help.

If you want to "Arrange" your Finder window "by Name"
Just enter "by Name" as the Menu command and assign your preferred key combination.

Please, not again.

Assigning keyboard shortcuts to sub menus
Authored by: guidoc on Dec 30, '04 09:54:42AM
I confirm that you have to type the exact name of the menu item. Of course if you're running the Finder in a language other than English, you have to type the localized string.

While trying this I've found something really surprising. My localized menu is "Crea Archivio". Well, I've tried but didn't work! Looking carefully at the menu, I've noticed that there are two white spaces between "Crea" and "Archivio". That's a bug, obviously! I've changed the preferences and then it worked fine.

So, type exactly what you read in the menu.
