Assigning shortcut keys in Keynote: Mac

I needed to make a picture of neural network. The picture is too much work as it has a lot of connected blocks to be constructed.
So, in order to reduce the pain, I looked for shortcuts.

I wanted to assign shortcut keys to connect the blocks. So, I went to :

  • System preferences
  • Keyboard
  • Keyboard Shortcuts
  • Application Shortcuts
  • From there I had to browse the keynote and put the exact word. In this case "Connection Line", and assign the shortcut.
  • This method is true in general. So, if I wanted to assign any set of keyboard shortcut to any task, it should work. 
  • Profit!! :)

Do not Repeat the task

In one of my work, the funny thing happened. The matlab could not save some of the finished task. It might be memory issues or what not... I am not sure. So, I wanted to run the program in such a way that it would not repeat the finished task while still running the new work.
This script does it!

% inDIR is the directory containing the save work
if exist([inDIR],'dir')>0

disp(['not doing ::: ', inDIR])

writeout = ['echo "not doing ::: ', inDIR, '">>notes.txt'];

% do nothing

% do it command here!!
