Just noticed this:


I want to change the TextEdit command Edit > Paste and Match Style from its obnoxious default shortcut to something else. I was successfully able to do this in Snow Leopard, but nothing happens when i try to do it in Lion.


Steps to reproduce:


1. Go to System Preferences > Keyboard > Keyboard Shortcuts


2. Add a new Application Shortcut for TextEdit.app


3. Menu Title is 'Paste and Match Style', Keyboard Shortcut can be anything (i'm trying to set Cmd+Shift+V)


4. Click Add


5. Switch back to TextEdit


6. No effect at all


I have tried this with multiple menu commands and multiple keyboard shortcuts, they all act the same. Changing shortcuts in other applications works fine and the shortcuts update instantly.


I also note that System Preferences is adding the appropriate keys to TextEdit's plist in my ~/Library:




    <key>Paste and Match Style</key>




It simply ignores it.


I have had a friend confirm this on his own compuer as well; we're both running 10.7.2.


Is anyone else experiencing this? Is there a way around it?
