Assign keyboard shortcuts to Smart Rules (and any other menu)

Hi there, it’s not possible to assign a shortcut to a Smart Rule in the normal way (by using the name) in system preferences as there are two menu items for every Smart Rule.

But it’s possible if you use the menu path instead, going step by step down, delimited by “->” (and no space before the next menu item).


This works with every menu item whose name is not unique in an app (and with all others too).


In english the code would be:

Tools->Perform Rules->scriptname
