How to make hotkey global?
edited February 2010
I have a script called 'open home folder', and i assigned a hotkey to it (command shift space) but it only works if I'm already in finder. Is there any way to make the hotkey work if I'm in, say Firefox?

If so, make a copy of the script, or move it to a location outside that Finder-specific folder. For instance, you could put it in:
Scripts/Global Finder Scripts
Or any other folder, really. You just can't have it in that "magical" Finder-specific folder or else FastScripts will assume you want the hotkey to only be active while the application is active.
