MacOS override cmd+space shortcut



  • Hello all!
    How i can override cmd+space shortcut ? by default spotlight appear when i press cmd+space... i tried install eventfilter for qApp and widget, but it not work



  • No.

    Cmd-Space is intercepted by the OS and never delivered to the application.

    PS:
    Oh, and you would make your users very angry if you mangaged to do so. Don't mess with users' experiences!



  • In Adobe Illustrator, Fontlab cmd+space is fast zoom shortcut.. and all time is work
    My users (designers) accustomed use cmd+space as zoom shortcut and my coworkers not understand way i can't implemented it now in Qt program



  • Yes, you're right. I just checked with InDesign. Although I would call it suboptimal, as the Cmd-Space shortcut acutually does two things: it switches to the zoom tool in InDesign and it opens spotlight.

    It seems that it's not possible to setup this shortcut with Qt (actually one has to add "Ctrl+Space"). Maybe you will need to add some Carbon/Cocoa specific native calls to your application. A quick search on Google led me to nothing, unfortunately.
