I'm using an Automator application menu service that spawns a new Terminal window and I've assigned a shortcut to it (control+alt+t). In most applications it works, but not in certain text editors like TextEdit or Smultron 5. I tried other control-based shortcuts, but neither those worked. Control+alt+t in particular even inserted invisible characters in the text! What gives? Can I bind some other keys while in text editors or am I out of luck?
