I was just wondering why there are no keyboard shortcuts for
Apple HIG's say:
Because a user uses a contextual menu as a shortcut to a set of task-
specific commands, it's redundant to display the keyboard shortcuts
for those commands.
Isn't the purpose of displaying keyboard shortcuts in the menus to
teach people a faster means of executing commands, and as such, why
is a contextual menu an inappropriate venue to do so? The sentence
above seems to suggest use of contextual menus at all automatically
presumes a certain amount of mastery, but it seems to me if someone
is using a menu item, regardless of whether it is contextual or not,
it would be safe to presume they may not know the keyboard shortcut
for the same command.
Thought it might be interesting to hear what people here had to say.
