    Adding keyboard shortcuts

    I know there are no stupid questions here but i'm pushing the limits. I want to add keyboard shortcuts from system>preferences>keyboard shortcuts but i don't know the command. What i want to do is add a shortcut to open the dictionary. If i knew what the command was, then i would have no problem. I guess what i'm asking is what the easiest way to find a programs command, not only for the dictionary but for any program.

    Assuming the OP marked this as solved by mistake, this is how to get the command for an app in the menus. Right-click on the main menu area and choose 'Edit Menus'. Navigate to where the app is that you want the command for. Highlight it and click on properties. There's the command under 'command:'.
