    Sharing keyboard shortcuts via script

    ChuckChiavarini

      Our company maintains a custom InDesign shortcut set which we share among our users. We push the .indk file to each user's "InDesign Shortcut Sets" folder at system startup.

       

      Trouble is, when users receive an updated version of the .indk file, InDesign doesn't automatically honor the new keyboard assignments. Users need to open the Keyboard Shortcuts dialog, select a different shortcut set (such as Default), click OK, then reopen the dialog, select the shared set and click OK.

       

      Not very efficient.

       

      So, I'm wondering: Is there a way to script the selection of a shortcut set? I can't seem to find anything in the object model that would do the trick.
