Can't change keyboard shortcuts preference

Post by Barry » Mon Sep 24, 2007 6:54 pm

I've tried 4 times and restarted, but the changes to the keyboard shortcuts preference do NOT work. I have selected "no shortcut" for Spotlight and chosen each of the other recommended shortcuts for LaunchBar, but nothing works. I still get Spotlight when I hit Command-Spacebar and no reaction from Launchbar on any of the other shortcuts.
Any ideas?

using Launchbar 4.1 on an iMac with OS10.4

"Search in Spotlight" is not actually Spotlight – it's Launchbars integrated Spotlight, only: it gets overwritten by Mac OSX's shortcut for 'true' Spotlight.
I admit the naming is a little confusing.

What you might want to do is go to System Preferences > Spotlight and deactivate/change the Spotlight shortcut there.

I hope this should help,

btw: You maybe want to upgrade to 4.3, though this is not related to your problem at all ;-)
