I read through all of the system-wide keyboard shortcuts in "System Preferences > Keyboard > Shortcuts" and I could not find nor unbind the Control+Shift+Space macro for use by SkipTune's pause/play keybinding. I know how to bind it in SkipTunes, but it just shows me this:Skip Tunes Error

  • (^⇧ + space) works for me in iTunes. You might have a look through your login items. Commented Feb 15, 2016 at 23:25

Macs containing a trackpad (i.e. MacBooks) or with a trackpad attached allow Chinese Trackpad Handwriting. The shortcut ctrlshiftspace shows and hides this trackpad.

enter image description here

I have no clue what I have written.

To disable it enable Chinese Trackpad Handwriting and then disable/remove the shortcut for Show/Hide Trackpad Handwriting in System Preferences -> Keyboard -> Shortcuts -> Keyboard.

  • Interesting, but I still don't know where the setting to disable the keybinding is.
