PRO TOOLS 11: Mac Custom Keyboard Shortcuts FIX

Posted on Posted in Blog, Tutorials

Hey! So wouldn’t you know when I FINALLY got rolling and everything updated in Pro Tools 11, the first thing I noticed is all my keyboard shortcuts were gone!  Awesome right?? NO.  After some research I found the fix and if you like to SEE these kinds of things, I made a video…

..If you like to read these kinds of things, how about I give credit where it is due and go check this post from strangepumpkin…or  read his words right below (you  lazy p*$*#)

I found a solution to the custom shortcuts issue. This will work provided you’ve already setup some shortcuts in PT 10.

Open com.digidesign.ProTools.plist in User/Library/Prefences with an editor like TextWrangler

Copy the section marked “NSUserKeyEquivalents” from <key> to </dict>

Then open com.avid.ProTools.plist and paste that info between <key>NSNavPanelExpandedStateForSaveMode</key>
<true/> & </dict>

That should activate some of the shortcuts you had before. Unfortunately, you still won’t be able to edit these shortcuts via System Preferences>Keyboard

But hopefully that helps you out.

It doesn’t completely resolve the issue. You can’t replace active PT 11 shortcuts with custom ones, but you can add shortcuts where there weren’t any before.
