I use Due for reminders, and have it set up to use the keyboard shortcut Cmd+Opt+D to activate the Due window (which lives only in the Menu Bar, not the Dock). This works fine in most applications and on Big Sur it worked fine everywhere, but after a clean install of Monterey it seems that Terminal.app is at least partially eating this shortrcut.
If I do the following with Due initially deactivated:
- Cmd+Tab to Chrome or TextMate or anything else.
- Press Cmd+Opt+D repeatedly.
then the Due window will come and go as expected, getting keyboard focus each time. But if I do the same with Terminal.app in step (1) then the Due window shows up after the first Cmd+Opt+D, but without keyboard focus, and will not disappear again later. It never becomes the active window.
In fact, the symptom is even more general. If Terminal.app is active and I use Spotlight to open System Preferences, System Preferences opens behind Terminal.app, without keyboard focus. No other app causes this symptom.
How do I get Apple Terminal or Iterm to not interfere with Due starting from the keyboard shortcut?
