I often edit a webpage in HTML and then switch to Chrome to preview it. In chrome to activate the web inspector you can use Command+Shift+C but if you're in Textmate that will pull up the colors dialog:


How can I prevent this dialog from being activated with Command+Shift+C ?

If you want to simply prevent Command+Shift+C shortcut in TextMate, then you can use BetterTouchTool for this. BTT is primarily used for creating custom touchpad and magic mouse gestures, but it handles keystrokes as well. I recommend to try this app not only for blocking the Command+Shift+C shortcut.

Try: BTT Preferences – add TextMate to the left panel – keyboard tab – add Command+Shift+C and set No action to it.

I tested this solution and I noticed that while BTT supports app-specific gestures, keystrokes are only global. – babca Aug 12 '12 at 16:05
Thanks, I like BTT a lot. I ended up using FastScripts to set an app-specific keyboard shortcut as you mentioned. – cwd Aug 13 '12 at 20:28
