Some standard Windows hotkeys don't work in OSX

Some standard Windows hotkeys don't work in OSX

Postby panamajack on Sun May 01, 2011 3:23 pm

I've configured some standard windows hotkeys in my user keymap preferences files as I occasionally use them for edit/copy/paste ( habit over the years ). I can't seem to get them to work in OSX

{ "keys": ["shift+delete"], "command": "cut" },
{ "keys": ["ctrl+insert"], "command": "copy" },
{ "keys": ["shift+insert"], "command": "paste" },

..and these are meant to emulate the menu label & letter keys of the edit menu..
{ "keys": ["alt+e", "t"], "command": "cut" },
{ "keys": ["alt+e", "c"], "command": "copy" },
{ "keys": ["alt+e", "p"], "command": "paste" },

I will mention that this works:

{ "keys": ["alt+f", "s"], "command": "save" },

My keymaps basically amount to the Windows keymap being copied to the OSX user keymap.

Thanks
