OSX Productivity Tip NO.1


I’ve thought that I was done writing this kind of stuff, but I’m about to tell you something amazingly simple and yet very cool.

Just go to:

System Preferences -> Keyboard -> Keyboard Shortcuts -> Services – that’s it.

There’s a hell lot awesome stuff you can do here.


Just remember to pick up a key modifier that would not interact with other apps. Command + Control is quite a good choice.

Here’s a bunch of cool stuff that I did:

1. Open an address in Google Maps [ ^ ⌘ G ]

Open address

This is minor but possibly time saving.

2. Import image [ ^ ⌘ O ] 

This is really useful – importing photos from iPhone straight to a document/note

3. Capture selection from screen [ ^ ⌘ P ] 

Complementary to the previous tip – you can capture part of the screen directly.

4. Send to Kindle [ ^ ⌘ K ] 

I often choose to read things on Kindle instead of a lcd screen, this tip just reduces the number of clicks between Kindle and my laptop. Note: You need Send to Kindle app installed in order to use it.

5. Upload with CloudApp [ ^ ⌘ U ] 

Instead of dragging why not just use a keyboard shortcut? Note. You need Cloud App .

6. Look Up in Dictionary [ ^ ⌘ D ] 

This is actually cooler than I thought. You can translate stuff just by putting the cursor over them, even in system windows!

7. Unarchive To Current Folder [ ^ ⌘ Z ]

Major relief from clicking.

8. Typeset LaTeX Maths Inline [ ^ ⌘ M ] 

I’ve left the coolest for the end – this let’s you change a LaTeX text into a nicely rendered picture in apps like Evernote – very useful for making science notes. Note. You need to download LaTeXian and change it’s default format from PDF to PNG.

And that’s just what I’ve discovered, what will you come up with?
