I am using LyX 2.02 on Mac 10.6.8. How do I make a keyboard shortcut for inserting a cross-reference? I asked this a year or two ago and got very complicated answer that I have unfortunately lost. In the mean time I had instead made a keyboard short cut in OS X for the menu item, but this no longer seems to work in LyX 2.02.
In fact, each time I opened LyX, my old OS X keyboard short cut for the menu item only worked after I first inserted a cross-reference using the mouse, but I tolerated this peculiarity. It seems that anything that you can do with a mouse click should be possible from the keyboard. Thanks, Hal
