Consolidating keyboard shortcuts?
« on: February 14, 2008, 05:56:44 PM »
I wanted to save a set of shortcuts, but I'm not sure which shortcuts are in which workspace that I've previously saved. I'm able to open and view the xml files for the keyboard shortcuts, but I can't tell which I want to keep.

Is there a way to get an XML file of the default keyboard shortcuts? Then at least I can do a diff on the files to see which ones I want to be sure to keep.

My fingers remember them, but I can't recall which ones I have assigned and which are defaults.

And I'm not sure if the ones were assigned with your plugin or not. Are those saved in a location or file different from "~/Library/Preferences/Adobe InDesign/Version 5.0/InDesign Shortcut Sets/Darryl's shortcuts.indk"

Any help is appreciated!

all default keyboard shortcuts are in /Applications/Adobe InDesign CS3/Presets/InDesign Shortcut Sets/Default.indk (depending on your actual installation).
