Great! I didn't know this was actually possible. I had been fuming
ever since installing Leopard that I could no longer use CalcService
with its convenient Cmd-= shortcut to perform calculations in a
document, because Leopard has bound Cmd-= tightly to the 'Font ->
Bigger' command which I hardly ever use, especially not in TeXShop.
Redefining this in KeyEquivalents.plist has failed to work: I can
redefine 'Smaller' but not 'Bigger' for some reason. (And you do have
to delete the example with its nested comments to get this file
working at all.)
But now I see I can redefine 'Bigger' as Cmd-Shift-= (and 'Smaller' as
Cmd-Shift-- for consistency) in System Preferences and made this stick
in 'All Applications'. My CalcService shortcut is restored!
(Of course the instant calculation feature in Spotlight has also been
a godsend, but sometimes I want the results of several calculations
visible at once, or want to insert them directly into a document.)
