# [OS X TeX] key bindings in texshop: what was that key combination?

Hi everyone,

Quick question on figuring out which key binding I used for a given text or symbol. When I open the key bindings editor in Texshop, I see all sorts of symbols in the left column, but I don’t know what key combinations they indicate. Could this be to do with the encoding chosen? Anyway, is there an easy way to tell what the combinations are?

(Encoding is a topic I don’t understand anywhere near well enough; for instance, I get an error when I compiled a file in which I left a bullet introduced when completing an environment — \begin{align*}, say — which makes it a pain; I’ll probably have to change the definition of all the completions. What is the recommended encoding for writing scientific documents, in English, on the latest Mac OS?)

Best regards,
Nicolae
