Command-spacebar not working

Recommended Posts

@jgabrysch Take a look at whether other apps/services are interfering with that hotkey combo. Start by taking a look at the 3 things on this page:
(Spotlight, language switching and Siri).


If you've recently updated to Catalina, it's possible that Spotlight has taken back Cmd + Space if you'd switched away from it, resulting in unexpected behaviour because two apps are trying to use the same hotkey.


You can also try temporarily changing your Alfred hotkey away from Cmd + Space and to something else to troubleshoot whether Alfred works normally with a different hotkey combo.

Also experiencing this. Here is my system info:

  • Alfred 4.0.7 [1131]
  • OS X 10.15.2

This happens to me at least once a week. I've completely disabled the Spotlight shortcut, and this wasn't an issue in previous Alfred builds (on version 4.)


I'm hoping I fixed the issue buy disabling the Input Source hotkey, that is noted int the cmd-space troubleshooting steps you linked. 😀 I only had one language, but the hotkey was assigned once I added a second language.
