    I have the iPP 12.9 with the Apple Smart Keyboard. I'm having issues with one shortcut not working, it's Command-Shift-H. For me this shortcut is very important, others might not use it as much. The only way I've gotten it to work is to rapidly hit the shortcut combo over and over. (I figured this out when frustration boiled over)

    I'm not having issues with other shortcuts, for example: Command-Space, Command-Tab, Copy/Cut/Paste, Command-T, and Command-L all work great 99.9% of the time.

    I've disconnected keyboard, powered off, reset iPad, getting nowhere... I've also exchanged the Smart Keyboard only to have the same problem.

    My reason for posting is to see if others are experiencing this specific keyboard shortcut problem. I'm within my 2 week return window and will probably exchange the iPad for a new one. I would hate to have the same issue on the new iPad.

    I can't find the MR thread, but I remember seeing this

    CMD+Shift+H Broken on Smart Keyboard?
    iPad - MacRumors Forums - forums.macrumors.com

    Anyone else with the iPad Pro Smart Keyboard notice that the CMD+Shift+H shortcut to go to the home screen is not working on 9.3? Or, is it just me? All other keyboard shortcuts work fine.

    EDIT: Nevermind. I just found out that they changed the shortcut hot key from CMD+Shift+H over to CMD+H. I can't believe you've done this Apple...

    I was surprised by the change too, but two fingers instead of three is a nice, if minor, change.

    FYI, if you hold the command key down on your home screen, it shows this (CMD + H) keyboard shortcut to return to the home screen.

    Thanks guys, I'll have to try it when I get home tonight. I was going by the online Apple documentation.
