This is motivation to write the code your app will need anyway in order
to open the file. :)
You can blame Apple for some of that: in Ubuntu and Windows you can
easily traverse all controls in a dialog, even the file picker, without
ever leaving the keyboard. On a Mac you have to make special
adjustments if you want to avoid having to keep switching between the
keyboard and mouse/trackpad.
That said, it would be nice if the IDE had a Shift-Cntrl-O option to
open with Any Files, but we certainly don't want that as the default
because it would be too easy to select non-LiveCode files.

What did you find when you looked in the File button script of revMenuBar?
