    How do I get rid of a menu hotkey in Interface Builder?

    I was just changing the menus of my interface... when I accidently clicked on the space beside "About NewApplication"... which it turns out is where you click to set a hotkey. So... I think "whoops, I don't want this to have a hotkey..." and so i hit the escape key. Escape got set to the hotkey for that menu item. I clicked on the field and hit delete... delete got set as the hotkey. So did forward delete. And so did clear.


    How on earth do get rid of it? I can't seem to right click it... or left click it... or drag it... how do I remove it!?

    I'm using Interface Builder version 3.1 (670). I just downloaded it yesterday so I'm pretty confident it's the newest version.

    Thanks a lot for the help.

    Seriously, it's been 12 days.


    I found the answer. When you're editing the menu bar items, open the inspector. Go into the attributes tab. The very bottom item is where you can set the hotkey. They call it "Key Equiv.". Hit the clear button next to it and there will no longer be a hotkey set.
