Description Miha Valencic 2014-01-22 09:04:36 UTC
First, I'm using Xamarin Studio on an Alpha channel, version 4.3.1 build 5 on a Mac OS X Mavericks.

I have two keyboard layouts: Slovenian and English. I switch between the two using Alt+Cmd+Space. 

When in Xamarin Studio, this combination does not work. And there does not seem to be the binding in Xamarin Studio for this key kombination.

I am having both Keyboard layout on my machines (U.S and Slovensko) and when I am pressing Alt+Cmd+Space, It opens Search window to find ion in this Mac. i am not able to reproduce this Issue. 
@Miha, Could you please provide me any screencast or more steps?
Comment 2 Miha Valencic 2014-01-28 05:30:48 UTC

did you change your keyboard shortcut Alt+Cmd+Space to switch language instead of doing find files?

I'm pressing alt+cmd+space in XS, but nothing changes. I've shown the keyboard setting shortcuts as well.

I can reproduce Miha's results, but in my case it's opening Spotlight because there is a keyboard shortcut conflict between Spotlight and Input Sources.  Going into Keyboard Preferences -> Shortcuts this is apparent due to the yellow icon next to "Input Sources" and "Spotlight".

When I uncheck the commands under Spotlight that resolves the conflict and I can then reproduce narayanp's bug.  When focused to Chrome I can hit Cmd-Space or Cmd-Option-Space to cycle between my input languages.

The good news is that I just fixed this bug this morning.  It's fixed in bockbuild commit a40ff424ac6d4ba6210558f0e35f34716bf41fb4

Sorry, I think I got the names reversed there. Either way, the bug will be resolved in the next Mono release. :)
