I have a whole bunch of documents from which I would like to figure out what keystrokes/symbols are used the most. What commands should I use to figure this out? I have (unsuccessfully) tried to use Flatten and Short. My approach is to pull the document into Mathematica as a notebook object, then use Mathematica's list manipulation commands to figure out what symbols are used most frequently. This whole problem involves my recent purchase of a Logic Controls programmable keyboard. So far I have programmed keys to perform [esc]sumt[esc], [downarrow]alt+5, cntrl+space, cntrl+9, etc. I am trying to figure out which symbols are used the most so that I can program the keyboard most efficiently.
