Here’s how to customise your own Keyboard shortcuts for any OSX application menus.
One feature I use a lot in Apple Mail is ‘export to pdf.’
But the export to pdf has no keyboard shortcut, as you can see here:
I want to add a keyboard shortcut.
You can do this for any Menu in any OSX application.
1. Go to System Preferences, select ‘Keyboard’.
2. Â Select the ‘Shortcuts’ tab (see below) and then ‘App Shortcuts’ from the left box. Then press the + button to add a shortcut.
3. Select the application you’d like to do the shortcut for (I’ve selected ‘Mail’)
Type theÂ exactÂ menu title. (Here it’s ‘Export as PDF…’). Â You need to type it exactly.
Select the keyboard shortcut you’d like to use, here I select Apple-E.
Press ‘Add’ to add the shortcut!
The new keyboard shortcut will now appear in the drop down menu like this:
Now when I press Apple-E my email will be exported as a pdf.Â You can use this shortcut anytime Â the application is open.
