There was a time when they were not integrated into the program, before Command Editor.
These were the Dark Ages of Rhino Mac… and yes, you could attempt to program them entirely through the native OSX Keyboard Shortcuts Pref Pane. It was terrible and not reliable.
Now, for the last year or two even they have been working well, Command Editor is exactly what it should be (Thank YOU!!!). Mac on par with Windows UI, even better in many ways.
Then, Boom. They break. Throw back Thursday.
Cmd+F2 will Lock Selected. But Cmd+Alt+F2 will not Unlock All. WTH!
How do I know this is a problem with RhinoWIP?
Because setting Cmd+Alt+F2 in the OSX Pref Pane Shortcuts WILL override RhinoWIPs problem and then the shortcut will run the command.
Also, because I’m running 5E12w on my iMac and Cmd+Alt+F2 works there, but not on my laptop. Both are running El Cap. I used the new (ImportPreferences / ExportPreferences).
It’s been obvious to me for years that there is something funny with the prioritization and handling of keyboard shortcuts. It doesn’t seem they are set up to reliably override OSX, and that makes the program much less usable, when switching between machines, we shouldn’t be expected to drastically change our technique.
More importantly, once a critical interface affordance has been canonized, (Keyboard shortcuts) they should be supported and made reliable, across platforms.
Please don’t explain this away as not critical since there are Icons… we all utilize and cope with 800+ commands in a different way, several ways in fact. Clicking on Icons for critical constant commands was never preferable for professionals.
