key command for drag copy?

proto
Booster
When i right click for the popup menu to search under "Move" for the "Drag Copy" command, it shows a key shortcut of "option-command-D"

On a mac, when i press option-command-D, I don't get "Drag Copy"
"Option-Command" gives me "Inject Parameters"
& the D adds nothing

the right click menu selection is tedious
what am i missing?

This is an issue with MacOS Big Sur - but maybe Catalina too? Whether it is something that the Graphisoft programmers could have programmed around (to give them priority over the keystrokes), I don't know...

The shortcut cmd-opt-D is pre-assigned by Mac OS to show/hide the dock:
https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT201236

Nothing I tried could get it unassigned from the dock functionality... and so ARCHICAD never even receives the key strokes.

The workaround is to assign a different shortcut to the command via the ARCHICAD Work Environment. In the attached, I'm about to assign cmd-shift-D to the command. Afterwards, that shortcut works fine.

Thanks, Eduardo! I looked through everything there except "Launchpad..." (why dock hiding is there is a mystery!).

So, yes, proto, just uncheck the box shown in Eduardo's screenshot and the keyboard shortcut should work in ARCHICAD without redefining it as I did.
