Shortcut for 'Flagged/Unflagged', '(Un)Read' with unexpected behavior

Reported by Thomas Hanke | January 25th, 2011 @ 12:24 AM


me again. I thought I mentioned that already, but I can't find it here.

Changing shortcuts via Keyboard system preferences works, as far as I can tell.

But there's a weird problem with 'Mark as Flagged/Unflagged', perhaps others.
Edit: same with 'Mark as Read'. Not with 'Junk' or 'Mute'.

  1. Assign custom shortcut to 'Mark as Flagged or 'Mark as Unflagged'
  2. Try it.
  3. Doesn't work.
  4. Shortcut without Shift (say Cmd-D) is substituted in MailMate - not in Keyboard - by with Shift in Menu (Shift-Cmd-D)
  5. The resulting shortcut works, but
  6. It may not work if it is assigned to another menu entry.

Is the Shift policy on purpose?
Edit: may be the case: Cmd-Opt-D is okay.

Goodbye and good night ;-)

    • State changed from “new” to “resolved”

    To be honest, I have no idea why ⇧ is added to the shortcut (I am able to reproduce it). It also happened for me in Apple Mail (when assigning ⌘D to Forward), but in Mail it became ⌘D after restarting.

    I often find that changing keyboard shortcuts is a bit unpredictable. I do not detect any changes to keyboard shortcuts and certainly do not add a ⇧ to such shortcuts.

    I'll close this ticket since I believe the described behavior is out of my control.
