OS X Mavericks: If a keyboard shortcut doesn’t work
This article has been archived and is no longer updated by Apple.
It’s possible to have keyboard shortcuts for one app that conflict with another app. For example, Command-Space bar opens the Spotlight menu, but in another app it might be used for switching between different input methods.
- Choose Apple menu > System Preferences, then click Keyboard.
- Click Shortcuts. A yellow warning triangle appears next to conflicting keyboard shortcuts.
