I believe Space is the shortcut on other platforms...? – Daniel Beck Jul 8 '11 at 14:22

Left/Right arrow keys usually work.

I tried and they didn't. Can you confirm they work for you? – Ram Rachum Jul 8 '11 at 10:27
They do for me and did for every Mac I've seen in my entire life. – slhck Jul 8 '11 at 10:28
They work for me too. – trurl Jul 8 '11 at 10:36
@cool-RR Have you got any custom application shortcuts defined? Any software or modifications that would alter keyboard shortcuts? – slhck Jul 8 '11 at 10:37
The biggest suspect is wxPython with which I'm creating the tree control, I'll investigate this. – Ram Rachum Jul 8 '11 at 14:15
