keyboard shortcut for native paste?

Post by Naut » 2007-03-08 15:24:21

Is there a way of creating a Keyboard shortcut to "paste text only"?

currently I am doing it from the paste menu on the statusbar.

surely there must be a way for doing via the keyboard?

Im a brand new user, and am looking forward to purchasing the pro version.

Nisus Writer Menu (right from the Apple menu) -> Preferences -> Keyboard Shortcuts.

In the Menu List, choose Edit -> Paste -> Paste text only. Now you can assign your own shortcut.

It's an opportunity for me to mention the brilliant Nisus Writer keyboard short-cuts system :)

I'm very fond of mentioning this as some will no doubt have noticed.

In Nisus Writer Express you can use a modifier key or keys and a series of regular keys as a short-cut.

To actually use this short-cut then you put one finger on the modifier and then press the regular keys in sequence.

So, for example the keyboard short-cut for Paste Text Only could be: command P-T-O and for Copy Text Only it could be: command C-T-O.

With the old Nisus Writer classic I created 186 keyboard short-cuts using this system I had no problem remembering them because a series of letters can be made very memorable.
