Activate some dialog boxes via first-letter key presses
Authored by: kkL on Jun 26, '06 08:29:33AM

It works like that in Photoshop too (hmm, another portable app...)

Too bad it doesn't work in all applications. I really like this behavior. OTOH I always have to think twice before deciding wheather hit space or return...

If it's so stinkin' portable, why hasn't Adobe ported it to Intel Mac yet?
:)

Sorry, couldn't resist a pun. Anyway, that's an interesting thing they both have in common. Are you thinking that portable apps are more likely to do this first-letter dialog trick than others? Hmm.

I just wish the OSX interface were completely consistent, so that this trick always worked [or maybe the CMD-firstletter trick, but this is better because it's less typing].

What clown designed the iPod calendar reminder, which won't show you the Location field? Guess they always meet in the same room at Apple?
