Thanks to Bill St. Clair I can now parse keystrokes whem there is no window
open. However, I would like to indicate these keystrokes in the pull-down
menus next to their respective commands. I'm currently just adding these to
the menu item title. I have a small problem though. Since the standard Mac
menu font is Chicago, a proportional font, the keystroke equivalents do not
line up very well. Does anybody have any suggestions for this?
I'd prefer that :command-key took an argument that described the keystroke
(that is, :COMMAND, :OPTION, :CONTROL or :SHIFT). However, I'd very happily
settle for a hack to line up my equivalencies without requiring a different
font or me spacing it by hand.
