According to the PyCharm Keymap for Mac, Control + Up Arrow and Control + Down Arrow are used to navigate between the previous and next methods. OSX of course uses these key combos for (Control + Arrow Keys) for navigating between applications.

Is there no solution beside remapping these keys in either OSX or in PyCharm?



  1. Open System Preferences
  2. Open "Mission control"
  3. Disable that hotkeys.

In Mojave 10.14 to disable Ctrl-up arrow and Ctrl-down arrow, go to System Preferences -> Keyboard -> Shortcuts -> click on Mission Control in left panel. Disable shortcuts that correspond to Ctrl-up arrow and Ctrl-down arrow (Mission Control and Application Windows).

Control + Up Arrow and Control + Down Arrow should now work in PyCharm
