I use a Mac. Sweet little MacBook I’ve named Hermes, because I purchased this Mac so I could use Quicksilver. It felt a little weird to put a large sum of money down in essence for a free application to use on the product I purchased, but it really has been worth it. I haven’t upgraded to Leopard because I don’t even use my dock. All QS, all the time.

I recently started using the Shelf, which I have to say is pretty dang hot. A persistent clipboard that lets me hot-swap text on the fly in a couple of keystrokes? Sort of rocking my world right now. Except I put something on the Shelf that wasn’t right, and I wanted to remove it. And it took me about 30 minutes to figure out how to do that! On the one hand, it kind of boggles my mind that what I see as simple functionality seems so hard to get to, but on the other hand my Metadata class has done quite well in getting me acclimated to that fact, and figuring out solutions.

What all do I need to know to get QS to read items on the Shelf and move those items to the trash? At this point, I have to use my mouse to perform the function, and the mouse is evil.
