Configure Shortcuts problem on Mac

Added by Garth Fletcher about 9 years ago. Updated over 5 years ago.

Affected QGIS version:2.6.0 Regression?:No

I'm running QGIS 2.6.0-Brighton under Mac OS X 10.9.5 on a
Mac Mini (late 2009) 2.26 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo with 4 GB RAM.

Settings > Configure Shortcuts… will not let me set a shortcut
which includes a Cmd key.

When I click on the "Change" button, which changes to "Input", the
button title displays
Ctrl- when the Cmd key is held
Alt- when the Option key is held
Meta- when the Ctrl key is held.
followed by whatever key I'm also holding down.
Attempt to set, for example, Cmd-L result in just L being set.

The standard Keyboard Viewer shows the correct keys - Cmd, Opt(Alt) & Ctrl
so OS X is "seeing" the right keys.

Work-around: I just used Opt.
But would be nice to be able to assign Cmd- shortcuts...

Truly wonderful software by the way!

With macOS 10.13.6 and QGIS 3.2.1, all 3 (Ctrl,Alt,Cmd) keys works for me. I.e. I can assign Cmd-shortcuts.
