Do you have the #honorDesktopCommandKeys preference set to true? If
not, desktop-command-keys are not honored. (But if you're a
desktop-command-key user, I can hardly believe that you would have
would have that preference set to false...)
Let's make certain we're talking about the same thing when speaking
of "desktop-command-keys." I am using this term to refer to commands
that you invoke by holding the command-key down while you type some
other key, and which are issued when the desktop has keyboard focus.
For example, cmd-shift-L brings up a file-list, cmd-shift-W brings up
a message-names tool, cmd-o brings up an "Objects Tools", etc. Are
you talking about those as well? Which specific desktop command keys
don't work for you when you issue them after shift-esc?
In my experience, using any recent Squeak -- 3.2 onward -- the
desktop-command-keys *do* always work after shift-esc, whatever the
keyboard focus, provided that #honorDesktopCommandKeys is true. (At
least on Mac OS 9.2 and Mac OS X 10.2.5).
Can anyone else offer any experiences that will help us get to the
bottom of this?
