Deactivate Overview Hotkey (Option + -)

What I did:
Pressed the ›long hyphen‹ shortcut (Option + - in German keyboard layout)

What happened:
The ›overview‹ dropdown menu appeared

What I expected:
A long hyphen! I use them a lot.

Things that might be helpful to know (Agenda version, OS and model, etc):
macOS 11.4, Agenda 13.0. Also happens on iOS though.

Is there a way to deactivate this hotkey so that I can use the shortcut the way I use it everywhere else?

Thanks in advance!

That’s very odd, option + - shouldn’t trigger anything like that, option-space (non-breaking space) can (did you mean that?). Can you also try the Agenda 13.1 update we just released? It allows you to switch off this shortcut in the Agenda preferences.

Thank you! Now I know what the trouble is: Apparently I keep the space bar pressed for too long when entering either long hyphens or an ellipsis. I’ll be more careful in future I suppose.

Or, if it’s just the way you are used to type, you can disable the option-space keyboard shortcut in the Agenda preferences and use cmd-shift-O instead (which also triggers the quickly open function).

Excellent! Thank you very much!
