Can't set CMD + Space to replace Spotlight on Lion 10.7.5

Recommended Posts

I'm Running Alfred 2 on my iMac 10.8.3.  I've disabled CMD+SPACE from launching Spotlight and I have that to launch Alfred instead.  

 

I've tried to do the same on my 10.7.5 Macbook (too old to upgrade to 10.8), but I am not allowed to set the Launch Alfred Hotkey to CMD+SPACE.  Having had many years of launching items with CMD+SPACE I'd really like to keep that as the setting with Alfredv2.  Is it possible?

 

I have disabled Spotlight launching so that's not the problem.

 

Any ideas?

 

Thanks.

Have you had a look at this knowledge base entry? It may be reserved by the language switching feature:

Alfred would only be unable to use it if it's reserved by another app or by OS X, so have a look at the above :)

That fixed it, thanks :)

 

I hadn't checked the languages section as I only have English installed.  Suprised that having 1 language only doesn't disable "Previous Language" keyboard shortcuts defaults.

 

I was unaware of Alfred until I saw a ScreenCastsOnline tutorial a week or so ago.  I was so impressed I jumped straight in as a MegaSupporter.  I've loving the extra power.  I'm really looking forward to the Workflows tutorial they'll be doing soon.

Glad you're all sorted, and pleased that you enjoyed ScreenCasts Online's tutorial - I watched it today and will definitely recommend it to anyone who's new to Alfred!
