1, How to export the keyboard shortcut to other machines?
2. can we configure shortcut keys for our scripts as well?
e.g Ctr+1 will execute script1.jsx etc rather than double-clicking it in the script panel.
2. Edit > Keyboard Shortcuts, in Product Area, select Scripts. Choose a script and assign a shortcut.
Say if I've configured all the script shortcut, how should I do to copy them to my many other users?
Is there a way to configure these shortcuts dynamically through script?
I don't know the answer to your 1st question. But I am sure that you can't assign shortcuts by script.
I have a guess:
In the following folder on my home computer, I found a file — Kasyan.indk — which corresponds to my saved set:
C:\Documents and Settings\Kasyan\Application Data\Adobe\InDesign\Version 5.0\InDesign Shortcut Sets
Probably if I copy the file to the corresponding location on another machine it would work.
But it is mere guesswork, I haven’t tested this.
I see... hmm will try to test it out tomorrow.
Will let you know after my test.
Thank you once again.
It will work as you guessed and it is only an xml format file.
Tried it out in CS2.
Override the default.indk to another machine.
Then start Indesign. The shortcuts does not reflect in the panel.
Do a check on the Edit>Keyboard Shortcuts.. to the Script drop down to check.
The shortcut keys were actually assigned.
Closed the dialog without changing anything.
The shortcut keys then was 'updated' in the scipt panel.
Strange.. seems to me it needs to be 'refreshed' by going through the menus then will it get updated.
Is this normal?
I agree that we can define shortcut keys for scripts. But with me different problem is happening. I am using InDesign CS3 and defined shortcut key too. Say after 30 minutes my shortcut key does not work. I had to quit an application and reopen it and then shortcut key works fine for another 30 minutes. Say after every after 30 minutes I need to quit and reopen an application.
Can anyone tell me why this is happening and is there any solution on this?
but we should set the shortcut again and again, once indesigned is closed and opend the shortcut for scripts which is assigned previously will be unassigned
any solution for that
this is a thread from 2009 and the version of Windows discussed is not Windows 10, I guess.
So I would do a new thread discussing your issues. Please state what's your version of InDesign and operating system.
Or are you using InDesign CS2 or CS3 on Windows 7 ?
