It's my opinion that it is outside the scope of what Livecode is. And as mentioned in other posts there are ways to hook into existing OS features to do this anyway. Livecode is not QuicKeys anymore that QuicKeys is Microsoft Office or Visual Basic or anything else. One Program to rule them all, and in the cpu bind them eh? Didn't we get rid of that blackguard at the end of the third age? :-)
