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>NSUserKeyEquivalents</key>

<dict>

    <key>Paste and Match Style</key>

    <string>@$v</strong>

</dict>

 

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?

 

cheers
