Space key as menu key?

I wanted to set Ctrl Cmd Space as menu keyboard shortcut but instead of “Space” it says “<Spc>” … how do I get it to say “Space”?

Cmd Ctrl Space is taken by the Emoji menu item though ?

That is unless you’re going to make the Edit menu name something funky so the system cant insert it ?

EDIT : One sec I need to fire up key bindings editor to see what it does

OK that seems wrong - The system key bindings define it as Cmd+Ctrl+Space and thats how it shows up so … seems a bug

EDIT 2 : set up your menu item
in App.Open add one line of code to change its KeyBoardShortCut to “Cmd+Ctrl+Space”
off you go and it looks right
seems you cant get “Space” in the menu short cut property to work (bug report)

Yup. That is what I’m trying to add …


Actually, the menu is added automatically by the system, I don‘t need to do anything.

weirdly enough its JUST the IDE that displays it wrong apparently
