I have found a couple of instances where the default shortcut key conflicts with programs that use that key to launch – e.g., Ctrl+Shift+K in Scrivener is a split shortcut, and I use that to launch KeePass – and I’ve been able to remap Scrivener to eliminate the conflict.
But there’s one case where it’s not working as expected.
I am currently using Ctrl+Shift+P to launch a clipboard utility. In Scrivener, that is the shortcut for Page Setup.
I have deleted that key combo from the Page Setup command, but for some reason I’m still unable to use Ctrl+Shift+P call up the utility. And even after assigning a totally new shortcut key to Page Setup, I’m still unable to use Ctrl+Shift+P as expected, though it still works from outside Scrivener.
It’s as though Scrivener is somehow holding on to that key combination even though it’s been unattached from any command – yet I had no problem doing this with Ctrl+Shift+K.
I’ve tried fully exiting Scrivener, but that didn’t make any difference.
Any ideas why this might be?
