Hi.....
I have an AppleScript that I have saved as an application.
I am saving it so that it always stays open!
How can I execute the script from a keyboard shortcut???
I dont want to install quickeys just for this.
Is there a way I can run my script from the keyboard.
regards

Open your Keyboard control panel and turn on the fucntion key shortcuts. Assign the applescript to one of the function keys. Now, when you press that function key, the applescript will launch.

To specify non-function keys you need something like quickeys. Generally command keys are for the foreground app only which eliminates conflicts between apps. Imagine the havoc that would ensue if command keys were global, you had 5 apps open, and each one does something different with command-B.
