Are there keyboard shortcuts for Copy Item Link and Add Link or can I add these functions as items on the Toolbar?
I know of the Link item on the toolbar (with chains), but it does not fulfill all of the above functions. It creates a link out of a highlighted text that I have typed, which is also useful, but I would like to have keyboard shortcuts or features/ buttons on the toolbar for the other linking options.
In OS X applications anything on the main menu can have a keyboard shortcut added via System Preferences. Here are Apple’s instructions. (These are for Yosemite, but the idea is the same for newer versions of OS X.)
For existing keyboard shortcuts in DEVONthink, look at the menu. The shortcuts appear next to the command name, for commands that have shortcuts. Copy Item Link is ^⌥⌘L. There is no pre-defined shortcut for Add Link… but the System Preferences method can be used to create a shortcut.
(When you are adding a shortcut for menu items that end with the three dot ellipses you will need to press Option and semicolon ( ⌥; ) to make the ellipses appear – ellipses are not three periods.)
Yes, true. However, KeyboardMaestro will not make the shortcut appear in an application’s menubar – which is what the OP requested. And neither KeyboardMaestro nor System Preferences can be used to assign shortcuts to contextual menu (control-click or right-click) commands.
Can this script be modified to get all of the links from a multiple selection. Right now I’m always copying links one by one because when multiple items are selected, the copy link disappears from the contextual menu
