I am having trouble using Microsoft office products particularly the commands:
CTRL + H (to find and replace) in Word
CTRL or ALT + arrows to jump a word at a time
The problem is because they trigger 'higher level' Mac OS X commands that I'm unable to disable or find any way to turn off.
I have created a CTRL+H command in excel using the System Preferences/keyboard/shortcuts/application shortcuts. But this doesn't work for word (nothing happens - perhaps the command is not called "Replace" in word?)
I have switched off (unticked) the spaces command in the same system preferences, but this has made no difference, pressing Alt+arrows still triggers spaces. clicking it on or off in the system preferences makes no difference.
I don't know what to name a command to 'jumponewordleft' in order to add it to this preferences, but it's meant to be a built in feature of Word so should spontaneously appear if I can suppress or reduce the priority of the Mac OSX embedded shortcut.
I have no need or use for either spaces or 'minimise/close window'.
Is there any way to overcome this problem?
