View Full Version : Keyboard shortcut for a service not working all of the sudden

I have a protected disk image on my SSD. I access it by using a service I made in Automator. I assigned a keyboard shortcut to it, CTRL+ALT+CMD+L which is supposed to open the disk image.

Out of nowhere, the keyboard shortcut stopped working. Every time I use the combination nothing happens. If I go to the <Application> > Services menu and click the service manually, it opens just fine.

Anyone know why the keyboard shortcut stopped working out of nowhere?

Try resetting the shortcut keys in Keyboard System prefs.
I've occasionally had problems as you describe, and nudging the prefs has fixed it for me.

I don't have an option to restore defaults under the application shortcuts area.

If I change the keyboard shortcut for the service it seems to work fine. I don't know why it's stopped working all of the sudden...I've used "CMD+ALT+CTRL+L" for a couple of years with no issue and then bam, one day it doesn't respond to that key combination anymore.

I've tried deleting and re-adding the shortcut, renaming the service, etc, and nothing seems to be working. Anyone know what the problem might be?

It's been 2 months since I posted this thread and I still have not been able to find an answer as to why a keyboard shortcut stopped working for no apparent reason. I've tried resetting the shortcuts back to default. Nothing I try seems to fix it.

If anyone could shed some light on this issue I'd appreciate it!
