Should this be List of Keyboard Shortcuts in Mac OS X ? Or similarly descriptive title? --Arn 03:30, 31 October 2005 (EST)

I think you have a point. What I'd suggest is "keyboard shortcuts in OS X". But I think it would be even better if we'd have different sections for: 1. General OS X shortcuts 2. Start, restart, shutdown, etc. shortcuts 3. iLife shortcuts 4. other app shortcuts --Diatribe 15:29, 31 October 2005 (EST)

Open Firmware shortcuts

I added the section for OF shortcuts, but it's too late to research and include them all. Will try to get to it tomorrow if no one beats me to it.--Beverson 23:39, 31 October 2005 (EST)

Question

Just wondering, what is the difference between single user mode and open firmware in terms of tasks that can be accomplished with them?

MS Office

It really pisses me off that MS uses different Keyboard shortcuts for their apps in the mac version than the PC version of their software.. I have an extremely hard time with excel on my powerbook as a result. Anyone have a list of keyboard shortcuts for office?

Yes, this really is frustrating after mastering many keyboard shortcuts in MS office on PCs and then have them not work on Macs. But it is not only that they do not work, but the help within MS office 2004 is not as extensive in the keyboard shortcut section as office xp. Also, it is hard to find information of them on the internet because most webpages with handy tutorials and shortcut lists are written for pc users since most businesses use pcs. Please start working on Adding MS O shortcuts. I will start with the ones I learned for power point. Please add more.

Possible change with new macbooks?

Hi, I'm a little confused. I remember using the 'rectangular selection' function which is listed here as 'option+drag' on my old macbook. That one died, and now I can't seem to be able to do it. I went into System Prefs and checked it out, and there was a distinct lack of any rectangular selection option. Could it be something Apple has moved/removed? Or am I missing something?

Here is my Sys Prefs:

Could the lack of anything under 'all applications' be the problem?
