Canvas does not pick up keyboard shortcuts unless editing text or just regaining focus in Mac OS X 10.11.
The main windows picks up keyboard shortcuts just fine, but when I initiate a new patch pressing ⌘1, for example, does nothing. I have to reach for the menu and click
Put > Object myself. Ironically, if I strike the shortcut (or any other) while I'm entering the object text (or any other text), the corresponding action fires. If I leave text editing the shortcuts go back to not working. I also get one responsive shortcut if the patch window just regained its focus, e.g. if I switch to Chrome and back to PD. Curiously enough, this does not happen as the window is created. Nothing else seems to enable the shortcuts.
This is happening on the latest packaged release (2.2.0), and also compiling from source (commit 83abd42e). I just came from using it on Linux and it works just fine.
