Reveal Paragraph Panel shortcut not working properly

It's Option+Command+T.

 

This happens after start-up...

  1. Formating text...create text on page
  2. Press select all (Com+A)
  3. Press 'Com+T" activate a field in the Character Panel,
  4. Press Opt+Com+-T to apply Paragraph level attributes... the Paragraph Panel does not appear.
  5. Switch to any other application that has some function for Opt+Com+-T (including The Finder) and it's working within the respective application.
  6. Return to Illustrator... and the Opt+Com+T function works.
  7. What is causing it to activate?

 

 

iMac 3.4GHz

32 GB Ram

Apple Wired Keyboard and Mouse

Intuos 4 Wacom Tablet

    Sounds like a conflict with some other software or the OS.

     

    Which version of Illustrator are you using?

     

    By the way, the default shortcut to highlight the font selection field in the Character palette is Cmd-Option-Shift-F

    Illustrator CS6 might be the reason, but I don't know for sure as I've trashed that version. In AI CS5 the shortcuts you're mentioning do work here.

     

    Passionate users of AI CS6 may have a look at your issue.

    works in CS6 on Mac OS 10.6.8 and 10.8.3

     

    The issue must be something else.
