I have set ⌥ + M to execute the command "Paste and Match Style", system-wide. I assigned this custom shortcut at the following location:
System Preferences → Keyboard → App Shortcuts → All Applications
However, instead of the desired effect of pasting and matching style, pressing ⌥ + M on my keyboard usually types the character
µ instead. Only every so often does my shortcut randomly function correctly.
How can I disable the assignment of this special character to my shortcut, so that the shortcut is dedicated to my user-defined command? I never have the need to type this Mu character, so I have no problem with ridding it from my keyboard entirely.
I understand that one can use a re-mapping program (such as Karabiner.app) as a workaround to accomplish this. But, does Apple offer a built-in way to remove special character shortcuts?
