So I've been learning how to write my own scripts and I'm trying to create a custom keyboard shortcut to execute it. I've gone into the Keyboard shortcut file and edited it, but my custom mapping doesn't show up. I verified that I'm working on the correct file by removing the shortcut for Undo and it indeed is removed from the menu. I can assign a shortcut for the Run Script File option, which is "ExecuteScript" = "()" in side the shortcuts file). That works fine but when I try to assign the custom script on the next line, "ExecuteScriptMenuItem01" = "()", it doesn't show up in the menu, thus not working. In any help in this matter is greatly appreciated.

Well this kind of odd, but in case anyone else has this problem, it seems in AE 2017 you have to set your custom keyboard shortcut to the second menu item in the list ("ExecuteScriptMenuItem02" = “()”), in order to execute the first script in the folder. Odd, but it works. Not sure if this is a bug but I'm running with it for now.

That's an old-ish bug specific to the Mac platform:
