Tutorial Description

We all know custom keyboard shortcuts are a boon to productivity, but it's such a faff to set them up via System Preferences. Time-consuming and prone to typos, the traditional way of setting up custom keyboard shortcuts can present some friction.

CustomShortcuts by Houdah Software is a free, easy-to-use utility that greatly simplifies the process. No need to navigate System Preferences, as auto-exposure of available menus per application plus auto-completion, makes the creation of custom keyboard shortcuts a breeze.

In this tip video, Don takes you through that process using CustomShortcuts, using a few practical examples.

The full tutorial covers:

  • System Preferences vs. CustomShortcuts
  • Add an Application
  • Ambiguous Shortcuts

And it also prompted me to buy Houdahspot (again. Had an earlier version). Very powerful.
