1 Get­ting started

Since 10.7 (Lion), Sum­ma­rize has needed ac­ti­vat­ing be­fore you can use it (most peo­ple don’t know it ex­ists). Go to Sys­tem Pref­er­ences > Key­board. Se­lect the Short­cuts op­tion, and then click on Ser­vices on the left. Scroll down on the right un­til you find Sum­ma­rize – it’s near the bot­tom.

2 Cre­at­ing a key­board short­cut

While Sum­ma­rize is high­lighted in the list, you can click the ‘add short­cut’ but­ton on the right-hand side to give Sum­ma­rize a key­board short­cut (oth­er­wise, it’s only avail­able through the Ser­vices menu). This is ex­tremely handy if you in­tend to be us­ing Sum­ma­rize fre­quently.
