Command-Option-D - Mac Programming

Hello out there, In our application we have Command-Option-D assigned to a menu command. In Mac OS 10.1, our application didn't receive command key events that the OS had pre-assigned (such as this and others - command-h or -m). Then in 10.1.5 and 10.2 we were receiving these events, now in 10.3 we are no longer receiving these events again. Does anyone know why this is happening or is there an API to check if these are pre-assigned by the OS and not available to us? Thanks in advance, Lyndsey...

    Default Command-Option-D

    Hello out there,

    In our application we have Command-Option-D assigned to a menu
    command. In Mac OS 10.1, our application didn't receive command key
    events that the OS had pre-assigned (such as this and others -
    command-h or -m). Then in 10.1.5 and 10.2 we were receiving these
    events, now in 10.3 we are no longer receiving these events again.

    Does anyone know why this is happening or is there an API to check if
    these are pre-assigned by the OS and not available to us?

    Thanks in advance,
    Lyndsey

    There is no API for this, since it's all supposed to be transparent for
    you. If it isn't, please file a bug report at
    <http://bugreport.apple.com/>.

    In this particular case, it definitely sounds like a bug. Menu
    shortcuts defined in your application's menus should override those
    defined in system-owned menus. You might want to post a note about the
    behavior you're seeing to the carbon-development mailing list, since the
    engineer who owns the Menu Manager reads the list.

    CW IDE is affected by this too. (And it annoys me greatly.)

    I was informed that in 10.3, Command-Option-D is always overridden by
    the OS. It was placed to overcome some bugs in Classic and hung apps
    in OS 10.
