    The Finger Lakes Region
    Open System Preferences->Keyboard. In the Keyboard pane click on the mini tab Select 'Keyboard Shortcuts. Highlight 'Application Shortcuts' and then make Finder shortcut to symbol you want to assign.

    Did I do it wrong? It's not working.

    The method posted only works for shortcuts to accessing stuff in the menu bar for programs. I'm not sure there's a method included in OS X for what you're trying to do. Someone might have a recommendation for a 3rd party program though somewhere.

    Why not use a text expander app, such as one of these?
