i was wondering if there was a shortcut for that controversial green plus button
Not by default (or if there is it's not shown in the menu). You can create one in System Preferences->Keyboard & Mouse -> Keyboard Shortcuts.
Click the +. The menu command is Zoom, set it for All Applications and away you go
but theres a problem ): it works in safari but not in itunes.. any idea??
iTunes seems to have it's own already defined (Control-Command-Z). Not sure how you can get rid of that. If you set your newly defined shortcut to that then it'll work everywhere...
hrm the menu reads it F5
when i click F5, the window bar blinks(blue) but it doesnt do anything
but when i click it, the zoom works
No idea mate. iTunes is a bit of an odd one as it's a very old code base. I don't have a shortcut set for Zoom at all and I've still got a shortcut set in iTunes. Try setting your global shortcut to control-command-z instead of F5 as an experiment...
cmd ctrl z worked for both itunes AND safari
...i guess its sometthing ill have to live w/
thanks for the help
Yeah, it's something to do with iTunes. It's old and cranky (and Carbon, not Cocoa like lots of the included apps).
I use CMD+Z to flick iTunes to the Mini Controller.
Sure you got the right menu name for iTunes?
You can create a custom keyboard shortcut in System Preferences. Just enter "Zoom" as the menu command name.
We already covered that. It was in my first reply
