The menu item is misconfigured. It should be:
put "Find.../F" into line 2 of tText
The engine will automatically use the command key unless you specify a
different one. The easiest way to see what's required for menu items is
to build a menu using Menu Builder and look at the text it produces.
From your other post:

The open parenthesis symbol indicates a disabled menu item. There is
probably a script that disables those items and does not re-enable them.
If the script adds the parenthesis specifically (rather than using the
"enable" and "disable" commands,) they can pile up.
A full list of menu and menuitem modifiers are listed in the dictionary
under the "menu" keyword. It's a little confusing but they're all there.
