I often find myself creating Keynote presentations with lots of extra slides. I then go through and skip a bunch for a particular class.
To make this slide choice easier, I added a keyboard shortcut for the "Skip Slide" and "Don't Skip Slide" menu commands. Unfortunately, they don't work consistently. In fact, it only seems that one at a time will work, which I think is a function of the fact that the menu item changes based on whether the selected slide is set to be skipped or not.
If a slide is selected that is hidden, the "Slide" menu will show "Don't Hide Slide." If I look at the menu by clicking "Slide," then the "Don't Hide Slide" keyboard shortcut will work. But, then if I select a slide is that is not hidden, the "Hide Slide" keyboard shortcut won't work. I can get it to work by opening the "Slide" menu (where I can verify that it shows "Hide Slide" and my keyboard shortcut). But, after that, the "Don't Hide Slide" keyboard shortcut stops working.
My question then: How do I get to use a keyboard shortcut for a menu item that is not in the menu at a particular time?
