10.4: Change Address Book to new 'Unified' look
Authored by: anakin on Jun 07, '05 11:40:16AM

You can do this to any app. I've remapped the key shortcuts in my Safari for a while now. I prefer hitting Cmd+K to do a Google search, more like Firefox, and it's faster than Cmd+Opt+F that is the default.

Just edit the nib and save your changes. Yet another beauty benefit of Apple.

10.4: Change Address Book to new 'Unified' look
Authored by: Flux Harmonic on Jun 08, '05 08:47:44AM

This is a great tip, and it works so much better than using system preferences.

What I found, though, is that all the shortcut keys -must- use the command key. Is there any way around this? For instance, I want to set "next tab/previous tab" in safari to "control-tab/control-shift-tab" (a la firefox).

10.4: Change Address Book to new 'Unified' look
Authored by: ncc59 on Jun 11, '05 12:30:18PM

whenever I try to open a .nib file located in the resources directory (either of Safari, Address book, etc.) I get this message : "The document xx.nib could not be opened".

No matter what I tried (chown, chmod +777,...) i get the same message. Of course my current account has administrative privilege. And I can't open directly from Interface Builder since it does not want to open package contents, only plain directories.

I'm running Xcode 2.1 and OSX10.4.1, but as you may guess I'm not an experienced user of XCode and Interface Builder.

Anyone else get this annoying error message ?
