Keyboard combinations aren't working


#1

The following keyboard combinations don’t work for me (there may be others…):

  • View > Focus Heading... option+cmd+u
  • View > Focus Tag... ctrl+cmd+u

In fact, no shortcuts that require me to press multiple modifiers at once work (eg View > Collapse by level...).

I have a custom keyboard map, but none of the keys there overlap with FoldingText’s shortcuts, and the same shortcuts work in other apps (eg Focus Heading... is the same as Develop > Show Page Source in Safari, which works).


#2

Was away for a few days, just got back. Can you start by trying the app in your guest user account (without the custom keymap) and see if it works there?


#3

I use FileVault so I can’t use the guest account with any apps other than Safari…


#4

So I’ve narrowed it down to my custom key bindings. I’ll do some more digging and see if there’s anything specific that affects it (I can’t see anything at first glance, but who knows).

For future reference one doesn’t need to log in as guest to test, just do this:

$ mv ~/Library/KeyBindings/DefaultKeyBinding.dict ~/Library/KeyBindings/DefaultKeyBinding.dict.bak

and restart any affected apps (eg FoldingText).
