Ever find yourself wanting a short-term shortcut button for something in an application, especially something buried a couple of levels down in menus? I’ve been using the Help menu search field to essentially pre-cache a menu item for quick access.
Specifically, when I work on the newsletter for my community orchestra, I have all the submitted stories in one Pages™®© document and the final newsletter in another document. I strike out stories as I move them over. I can tell what’s been finished, but I don’t destroy what’s there in case I need to undo or refer to something. There’s no toolbar button that I could find for strikeout, so I just search for ‘strike’ in the menus. Now when I want to strike out some text I just go to the help menu and hit the first useful item.
