I like to maintain some scripts I use to set up new Macs the way I like them. One thing I would like to automate is the setting of some keyboard shortcuts — such as changing the Safari "Quit" command from ⌘Q to ⌥⌘Q.
Per advice here, I tried running the following in the Terminal:
defaults write com.apple.safari NSUserKeyEquivalents -dict-add "Quit Safari" -string "@~q"
However, quitting and re-opening Safari and System Preferences shows no difference after running the above command, although it appears to have worked if you look at the output of
defaults read com.apple.safari.
Using the UI under System Preferences → Keyboard → Shortcuts works as expected, causing the Quit Safari menu item to gain a modified keyboard shortcut.
How can I successfully script this change?
