Why does Command+Ctrl+D not do anything in Chrome or Preview.

It works in Apps like Mail and Safari.

Thanks.

Command is a modifier key for macs. It's next to the spacebar, where alt is on PC's, and has the following symbol: ⌘

@Macboer, it does nothing for me in Mail or Safari. What's it supposed to do?

Oh right - you have to hover over the text - gives an instant definition. I know this shortcut but I always still right-click on the word! Will try remember it.

Well then it's easy to answer - Chrome is not a good Mac citizen. It also doesn't support Applescript.

No it's Chrome's fault. Any non-cocoa app will do this eg. Firefox. BTW you should upgrade to Snow Leopard man.
