Adding Custom Shortcuts To Xcode

It’s always bugged me that Apple removed the Command + T shortcut to toggle Slow Animations.

Using the following approach, you can restore this shortcut and add custom shortcuts to any Xcode or iOS Simulator settings.

In System Preferences, select Keyboard -> App Shortcuts -> +

Then, just specify your preferred shortcut - I'm using Command + T like in the good old days.

⚠️ Make sure the name matches exactly how it appears in the Menu Bar (i.e. "Slow Animations")

And voila! We can now toggle Slow Animations via Command + T (again).
