Keyboard shortcut not working anymore; cryptic message

Recommended Posts

Since the upgrade to version 1.7.1 one of my keyboard shortcuts isn’t working anymore; it shows a yellow triangle (that indicates to me that there is a conflict with another option) and the tooltip “move inside” when hovering over the field with the pointer. I have several problems now:

  1. It doesn’t tell/show me with which option it is conflicting, and there is no way to search for the option(s) where keyboard shortcuts are used.
  2. What does that cryptic message “move inside” mean? Nothing is happening when I click the field.

I think move Inside is something in the 'Layers' menu.

Hello VIPStephan,
“Move Inside” is the name of the other command that is currently using the shortcut you just entered.
If you want to free-up that specific key command for another use, you will still have to hunt down “Move Inside” manually to change it but at least you now know it’s name!

To make it somewhat easier to find where keyboard shortcuts appear in Keyboard Shortcuts preferences, note that the preference categories (the first popup) & subcategories (the second one) are laid out as much as possible to match their location on the menubar. So (assuming you know that "Move Inside" is in the submenu of the Publisher Persona Layer menu) you will know where to find it:
