Shortcuts Tab

In Hook’s Shortcuts preferences pane you can configure several global keyboard shortcuts. Those are shortcuts that work even if neither Hook’s contextual window nor Hook’s menu bar window are open, so long as you’ve launched Hook. The global commands are

Each shortcut can be enabled or disabled with a checkbox.

Show Hook window (global keyboard-shortcut)

The default keyboard shortcut for showing Hook’s contextual window is ⌘⇧SPACEBAR. That is: spacebar key while holding the shift and ⌘ keys down together at the same time.

This is the command to use to invoke Hook.

You can assign a different global hotkey or key combination with which to invoke the Hook window. This will override any other application which uses the same keys, so choose keys which won’t conflict with anything important. If you uncheck the box it will disable the hotkey.

Show Hook menu bar window (global keyboard-shortcut)

You can also configure a global keyboard shortcut for showing Hook’s menu bar window.

Configure Hook commands non-globally

You can also configure most of Hook’s menu items in the same way as you can most Mac apps. For instance, you can change the keyboard shortcuts for Reveal File in Finder.

Those are not configured on the Shortcuts tab, but in System Preferences. Just

  1. click on the Apple menu (top left)
  2. click on System Preferences,
  3. click on Keyboard, then
  4. click Shortcuts.
