I'm trying to create a keyboard shortcut for the Dev1 menu:

enter image description here

What should I put in the shortcut preferences? I've tried:

Dev1
New Tab>Dev1
>New Tab>Dev1
Shell>New Tab>Dev1
>Shell>New Tab>Dev1

None of those work.

According to this thread, Lion should support this.

The tip mentioned at Apple Support Communities works for most menu items for me (like >Format>Indentation>Increase in Mail), but not for ones in the New Window and New Tab menus in Terminal. –  ؘؘؘ Feb 23 '12 at 22:39
    
Why does it work for some but not others? That's so weird... –  erotsppa Feb 23 '12 at 23:11
    
    
The Lion solution does not appear to work for dynamically created menu items. I can assign hotkeys to e.g. File » Open » Clear Menu, but not any of the dynamic entries. –  Daniel Beck Feb 24 '12 at 16:45
    
They don't work with New Window and New Tab submenus because the menu item names are duplicates, making it ambiguous which would get the command key. If this is important to you, please file a bug report developer.apple.com/bugreporter (requires a free developer account) or provide feedback at apple.com/feedback/macosx.html . If only one of the two submenus could accept the command key(s), which one would you prefer them to work with? –  Chris Page Feb 26 '12 at 13:06
