    If a mod wants, he can merge this thread with my other thread (http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?t=400028&), they're both evocam related, but this one is a more general mac question


    I just found a quick little guide on setting up a cusom keyboard command (http://www.applegazette.com/mac/os-x-quick-tip-create-your-own-keyboard-shortcuts/) and I tried it but my command wouldn't do anything. I have evocam set to not show in the dock thanks to dockless, so I opened up the activity monitor before trying it but evocam still doesn't show up. Is that guide wrong/am I doing something wrong?
    I just used cmd+option+w for the shortcut, but it doesn't seem to work, thank you in advanced for your help.

    It still doesn't really give me all that I want, because I can't get it to show anything on the menubar but it definitely helps. Thank you.

    Need Assistance Creating a Keyboard Shortcut to Launch Programs

    I am a new Mac user and just purchased a new iMac and absolutely love it. I am a seasoned Windows PC user and teach Windows at the graduate level. I am looking for a way to create specific customized keyboard shortcuts to open/launch the various Leopard applications. I am familiar with the Mac OS X technique of changing a Menu Command keyboard shortcut, but I need assistance in creating a keyboard shortcut that will allow me to open Leopard applications. Any assistance will be appreciated.

    Thanks from a new Mac user.
