[OS X TeX] Changing keyboard shortcuts in TeXShop

Thanks for the responses. A few comments.  First, if possible, I'd 
still like an answer to my question---why doesn't the procedure 
described in TeXShop help work for changing keyboard shortcuts? Is it a 
bug? Has anyone here used it successfully?

That's great; it does what I want. I notice Safari works the same way, 
so this must be a Cocoa thing. Thanks.

Yes, I did ask about page-up/page-down. As Herb noticed, the M- 
shortcuts don't seem to work...and no combination of CTRL/OPT/CMD/SHIFT 
seemed to matter. (BTW, "beginning of line" is C-a, not C-f.) But I'd 
like to get away from emacs bindings and use more Mac-like commands. If 
someone knows how to "fix" page-up/page-down so that they move the 
cursor in addition to the views, that would be great.

Won't my changes get silently over-written the next time TeXShop saves 
its preferences? I don't really want to redefine a new shortcut on a 
global level.
