Customize the Cocoa text binding system
Authored by: ra5ul on Mar 21, '06 08:53:43AM

how did you get M-u to work as a keyboard shortcut? any of the meta modifiers that generate diacritics keep failing here.

I have the same problem. Using Option as Meta, M-c works but M-u does not.

Also the C-x bindings don't work either. C-x C-s would be wonderful. :)

darnit. Silly me. Apparently "saveDocument:" doesn't work, but "save:" does. I'll fix that. I thought I had tested it.

Yes. save: and saveAs: both work. Neither openDocument: nor open: seem to work though.

You're right. The diacretics make it fail. If you want to use ~u as a binding, you'll probably have to make a new keyboard layout, look at my full article. It links to an application called Ukelele which can do this.

Apparently the diacretic is getting caught at a lower level than the text system, so its shortcut won't work as a binding.
