Assigning shortcut to paragraph composer?

Jan 21, 2013 5:22 PM

I am building a freesh set of shortcuts in CS6 and would like to assign shortcuts to Paragraph > Adobe paragraph composer and Paragraph > Single line composer.

 

Can't seem to find them anywhere in the shortcuts lists - any ideas?

 

Thanks...

    You can assign shortcuts to paragraph styles. Won't that do? You could make the paragraph composer the global default, but it already is. You could write a script to toggle it on; and then give the script a shortcut. You could fuzzy-logic search for it in Quick Apply (cmd+return, return) and then use that endlessly.

    If you want to script it, maybe this will work:

     

    app.menuActions.itemByID(27164).invoke()

     

    The above one line script would turn on the paragraph composer

     

    app.menuActions.itemByID(27165).invoke()

     

    This second example would turn on the single-line composer

     

    A better scripter would know how to do IF statements and combine it into one script that might act like a toggle. But a saved script CAN have a shortcut given to it.

    Actually, on further examination, there is a shortcut possible in your keyboard shortcuts:

     

    Product area: Type and Tables > Switch composer (that looks like the best choice)

     

    and another:

     

    Product area: Panel menu > Paragraph: Adobe Paragraph Composer

     

    and another:

     

    Product area: Panel menu > Paragraph: Adobe Single-line Composer

     

    All could be given shortcuts!
