Can't map command-s to Send and command-shift-D to Save.

Reported by Roland Dobbins | October 27th, 2014 @ 01:46 AM

I want command-s to send a message, and command-shift-D to save a message (how in the world is command-shift-D to send a message considered to be intuitive, heh?).

I created the ~/Library/Application Support/MailMate/KeyBindings$ /Applications/MailMate.app/Contents/Resources/KeyBindings/ directory (it didn't exist by default), and then created Custom.plist within it, using the Property List Editor:

{ "@s" = "send:"; "@D" = "saveDocument:"; }

I then enabled 'Custom Key Bindings' in Preferences, and put 'Custom' in the input box.

What am I doing wrong?

Many thanks!

    Looks like the formatting of the .plist file is wonky in this ticketing system - let me try again:

            "@s" = "send:";
            "@D" = "saveDocument:";

    Still looks wonky. Please take my word for it, Custom.plist is formatted correctly.

    • State changed from “new” to “closed”

    The problem is that the key binding system does not allow you to overwrite default shortcuts. You can add new shortcuts for the same functionality, but changing existing shortcuts can only be done via “System Preferences ▸ Keyboard
    ▸ Shortcuts ▸ App Shortcuts” -- and that probably does not work well for “Send” since this is a menu item that can change its title.

    I think the Gmail key bindings bind sending to ⌘+return.
