Hey There,
i just tried the script within your awesome nukeshared setup: unfortunately it works fine with windows but not with mac. I tried several Texteditors on mac, but none of them let me control more than one shortcut! it seems like it is a formatting issue, but i cant figure out what to do different. I tried textedit, sublime and the usual textedit.

I'm updating NukeShared soon, and this will be in there as well.
