Under any keyboard combination: default, proper, PM, Quark
The Indesign label in the menu (above, left) is shadowed when the shortcut is typed.
But the rest of them are oK
Could be fixed in some way?
Just to know if it is a problem here.
CS6 was OK.
Core duo 3.06
Usually because the shortcut is assigned to something else.
You can go to Edit>Keyboard Shortcuts and find the command see what it's used for - you could use the "Show Set" button and do a search to find what it's being used for.
I had the same problem, also when trying to centre a graphic using Shift+Cmd+E. Turns out the keyboard shortcuts in:
System Preferences> Keyboard> Keyboard Shortcuts> Services
now clash with Indesign. I turned them all off and now everything is fine: I never used them anyway. Keyboard shortcuts in CS6 aren't affected by this.
Glad I stumbled on this, I was in the middle of a doc when all those shortcuts "suddenly" stopped working.
Does anyone know if this should be fixed in a patch or if this might be a permanent behavior because CC is interacting differently?
Anyway, thanks for the help!
It's not really a bug. InDesign on the Mac had to be deCarbonized and written with Cocoa calls for Mac OS X. That may be a requirement of the new programming required. InDesign just gives the system the default for keyboard shortcuts.
However, it's easy to reset the system keyboard shortcuts as described above.
So, is that to say that similar shortcuts who once worked together (ex: hide / show dock and duplicate) won't in the future?
Are there workarounds rather than simply reset the shortcuts? Would it be possible for the computer to recognize when InDesign is running and thus give it precedence on the shortcuts?
I really don't know the inner workings of apps and such so it's a curiosity more than anything. Thanks for the info!
Maybe I didn't explain myself well. I just meant that if a shortcut is set in InDesign (e.g., Cmd+Shift+L) and is also set in the operating system (same shortcut), the OS will win. But it's easy to change shortcuts either in the OS or in InDesign to something else.
Actually that was a very clear explanation, what I was wondering is why (at least, to my knowledge) CS6 didn't act in the same way as CC does. The shortcuts in my OS have stayed the same and the concerned keyboard shortcuts also (e.g., Cmd+Shift+L), which is why I wondered how it would act in such a way now.
I said it was out of curiosity as I never particularly used the OS corresponding shortcuts, so turning them off did the trick.
InDesign CC was changed totally from CS 6 as it was converted from "Carbon" code to "Cocoa OS X" code.
In doing so, there might have been a switch that Adobe could no longer have that lets the keyboard shortcuts take over ID.
Or it might just be a bug in the conversion to Cocoa and needs to be fixed. I'm sure Adobe is aware of the situation.
I agree. This has been bothering the hell out of me since CC arrived! I knew that there must've been some sort of conflict somewhere, and I reported it as a bug twice. Thankfully this thread finally showed up under a Google search for ID CC Align Text Left, after months of trying to track this down. Hallelujah.
