Control Characters in AppleScript
  • The AppleScript phrase "shortcut string of keyboard shortcut of (reference to a script item)" returns the unicode text symbols conventionally used for control, option, shift and command modifiers in combination plus the ASCII character of the shortcut, and these display properly in a dialog or choose from list.

    What font are these in? I'd like to be able to parse them for the words.

    Does anyone know a way to sort on them before presentation in a "choose from list"? AppleScript doesn't seem to be the answer.
