This file is used to edit or add special shortcuts that don’t appear in the Mac menu bar or System Preferences. Some examples:
Ctrl-b → Move back one character
Ctrl-f → Move forward one character
Option-b → Move back one word
Option-f → Move forward one word
Editing this special shortcut text file made these commands work throughout all Mac applications. No issues still works! However, I am unable to locate this file’s path again now that some time has passed. I want to fiddle with it some more.
- Plain text file.
- The file in somewhere in ~/Library. No idea on the name.
- Not looking for the System Preferences keyboard shortcuts.
- Not the same file that stores the System Preferences keyboard shortcuts. (hard-part)
- Editing this file will change the shortcut across all Mac applications, e.g. Safari, Notes, Finder, Pages, etc. This won’t effect 3rd party apps. This behavior is desirable.
