Boost Your Workflow: Create Custom Keyboard Shortcuts (OS X)
I'm a huge fan of keyboard shortcuts, and pretty much anything else that speeds up my workflow. One of the main reasons I use and love Pro Tools is because I'm so used to the layout and editing functions, most of which I control with the keyboard rather than mouse. There are, however, some menu items that I find myself clicking on regularly that I wish I could access without have to click around.
Well, thanks to a built in function of Mac OS X, this is no longer an issue, as you can create your own custom keyboard shortcuts for any menu item in any application. This is obviously useful for programs other than Pro Tools, including other DAWs, so if you're using a different platform, take these ideas and apply them to make things faster and easier.
