CMD-shift-*, what is it? - Mac Applications & Software

I discovered it by accident, and I like what it does. Can anyone explain it? For me all the screen colors are inverted. Not only that, but CMD-shift-& gives me a screen crosshair, maybe these are hotkeys since this is a TiBook? -- Rachel [url]http://www.Gnarlodious.com/Cogent/Cogent.html[/url]...

    It doesn't seem like it. The Universal Access shifts screen to black and
    white, while the key combo I mentioned shifts to inverse colors. Maybe this
    is a feature Apple is cooking up for 10.3

    Hm, you're right that the invert function now forces grayscale. Oddly
    enough, on my system, Cmd-Shift-* doesn't do anything at all...

    This is part of universal access to help those with poor eyesight. Another
    one is command-option-8, which switches on zoom (command-option +/- to
    zoom in/out)

    No, it turns out that the combo takes a screenshot of the entire screen and
    puts it on the desktop in one fell swoop.

    The second combo takes a screenshot of a selected area of the screen.

    I guess this is a part of the OS, it's a lot easier than using Grab unless
    you want a time-delay screenshot.

    Now I need a folder action script attached to the desktop folder that will
    open all files of:
    File Creator: drag
    File Type: clpp

    To open in Graphic Converter

    Take another look. There's more than one setting in UA.
