    for the QS users out there let this be the thread for QS querries.

    i have a question about creating triggers. I finally found a series of quicksilver actions i'd like to put on one trigger. i set them in the QS preference pane and assigned a keystroke combo and checked off the "activate on press" box. fired up QS did the key combo and nada. am i doing something wrong?

    ANSWER: you have to use a unique keystroke combo that doesnt occur in any other app. best to use 3 keys. also i switched advanced features on and to beta. i know the first is required but not sure if the latter is. i also realized that a trigger will work no matter what app is on without needing to launch QS first.

    apple+delete will put the selected file/s to the trash.
    shift+delete will empty the trash or is it ctrl+delete?.
