How to reset Keyboard Shortcuts

Hi There

I (rather stupidly!) set a keyboard shortcut of Cmd-Shft-S to "Skip Next / Current Break" which has now disabled my Save As keyboard shortcut in just about every other program! But now I can't remove that shortcut as it isn't displayed (see attachment).

I tried downloading the app again and reinstalling it, but that hasn't changed anything.

Any suggestions?

Thanks in advance
Rae

Try assigning it again, then clear it. That should disable it.

Please let me know whether or not this helps.

Hi David ... thanks, but I already tried that and it didn't work either.

Re: How to reset Keyboard Shortcuts

Hmm. Have you tried restarting your Mac?

If that doesn't work, you could delete your preferences. Quit Time Out, then delete the file in the following path (assuming you're using the Mac App Store edition; if not, remove the ".free" part):

~/Library/Group Containers/6Z7QW53WB6.com.dejal.timeout.free/Library/Preferences.toprefs

(Tip: you can paste this into the Finder's Go > Go to Folder... command to reveal it.)

Thanks David, I thought I had restarted, but perhaps I hadn't! The shortcut doesn't seem to exist anymore, but I'll keep note of your other fix just in case. Thanks again
