Spotlight shortcut (Cmd-Space) clobbered by Lazarus?
« on: June 07, 2017, 07:17:54 am »
Lazarus 1.6.4 + FPC 3.0.2
macOS 10.12.5 Sierra

Hello again, I'm left with a minor problem, and I don't even know if Lazarus is the culprit. The problem seemed to happen after I ran Lazarus for the first time after changing my default user account. I know, however, that correlation does not necessarily imply causation, so I don't know! The keyboard shortcut I used to launch Spotlight (Cmd-Space) no longer works. Reassigning a different shortcut (Option-Space) to Spotlight does work, and System Preferences shows no obvious shortcut clashes. Has anyone else seen this problem?
macOS 10.12.6
Lazarus 1.8.0 RC4
FPC 3.0.2

Lazarus uses ctrl-space to popup intellisense/codeinsight/codetools. I don't know how that maps on Mac. But Lazarus is very configurable in that regard
