Leopard: Print to PDF in 3 keystrokes!

I love that OS X can create PDFs of anything you can print. I was even more thrilled that the new Preview app (part of OS X) can combine documents, reorder pages, etc., and save a new PDF -- wonderful.

But creating PDFs always required the mouse, which was irritating. Now with Leopard, not anymore:
  1. Apple menu -> System Preferences -> Keyboard & Mouse -> Keyboard Shortcuts
  2. Hit the "+" at the bottom of the list
  3. "All Applications" --- Menu Title: "Save as PDF..." (must be typed perfectly!) --- Keyboard Shortcut: cmd-p
  4. Click "Add"
Now, whenever you want a .pdf file created, just hit cmd-P twice.

Love it!
