Mac Lightroom can't point Plugin menu items that using System preferences 'Shortcut' tab on "Keyboard"
IE. My Plugin Named 'C2Cap' that have Menu Items 'Collection'
To assign keyboard shortcut to Menu Item 'Collection' , Normally specify on shortcut tab on system preference.

Library->Plug-in Extras->C2Cap->Collection

But this can't assign shortcut to menu item.
Tentatively, Specifying by

Library->Plug-in Extras->C2Cap

this shortcut key point to 'C2Cap', but this can't launch C2Cap Plugin.

Other Lightroom menus can point by shortcut tab on Keyboard system preference.

Please Fix This Problem.

You need to insert three spaces before the name of the menu item, e.g. "<space><space><space>Collection" (replace <space> by an actual space).  

In case you're not familiar with it, the Lightroom SDK forum is a good place to ask questions about programming LR plugins -- your posts are more likely to be noticed by plugin developers there than here.
