How can I eliminate the useless Control Alt F global shortcut (move cursor to the next word)? It's in conflict with another custom shortcut I really need.

(macOS Sierra 12.12.2)

    Possible duplicate of Change the Option+R/L shortcuts to Control+R/L. While not an exact duplicate (differing key combos) the premise of the question and the answer are the same.

  • thanks for this link...however, I couldn't find the shortcut I am talking about in 'karabiner', nor I have any idea of how to modify the .xml they talk about, to get the effect I want...

    @jjrr Please add your system version! Because Sierra and Karabiner are still not compatible! Also: in which app(s) do you need the ctrl-alt-F shortcut to work differently? And: using a German keyboard layout the shortcut doesn't work at all. I just get a ƒ. Using the en_US layout it works though.

    Seeing that's it's Sierra, I went ahead and retracted my close vote and edited the question with the detail.

    I'd need to know what app - but here's a generic explanation - apple.stackexchange.com/a/269851/85275
