Yeah, I know Microsoft in my blog…
I am using mainly Open Source tools where I can but Microsoft Office is an application where there is no alternative that doesn’t come with the danger of destroying a document created by Microsoft Office.
Having to translate a great amount of text from English to Greek I had to deal extensively with that tool! So I noticed that Copy, Cut and Paste keyboard shortcuts doesn’t work out of the application on Mac OS X Mountain Lion, for example to copy text from the document to google translate.
I googled around and I found this:
Go to Settings, then Keyboard and select the tab “Keyboard Shortcuts”.
Next, you go to Application Shortcuts and you press the “+” button, You select the Microsoft Office Word (or whatever Microsoft Office application you want), type the command (“Copy” or “Cut” or “Paste”) and the corresponding keyboard shortcut.
You should end up with something like this:
This should work!
If you have a better solution please feel free to post it in the comments!
