Voice Over and hotkeys

All versions
There are some issues with hotkeys when Voice Over is ON, especially:
  • All shortcuts that involve both VO keys (Control and Option) are not working.
  • Hotkey editors (our and others) react badly when both VO keys are pressed.
  • Mouse locator activation by tapping on a single modifier key is affected. The locator may be shown when the second VO key is pressed or depressed. This case is valid when the Control or Option key is selected to activate the locator.
Workaround:
  • Change default hotkeys to combinations without Control and Option (⌃⌥).
    For example, change the locator activation hotkey from “⌃⌥⌘ Space” to “⌘ Space”, “⇧⌘ Space”, “⇧⌥ Space”, etc.
  • Try using “⌘” or Function for modifier key only activation.

How to open myPoint panel when myPoint is hidden

You can achieve this in two ways:
  • Deselect the checkbox "Show myPoint icon in menu bar extras" in General preferences.
  • Use "Toggle icon visibility" hotkey in General preferences.
Safety note:
Please write down this hotkey before you hide the icon (default: ⇧⌃⌥⌘ Space).
If the icon is hidden and the hotkey is forgotten, please relaunch the app (while it is already running in the background) to open preferences panel.

Disabled buttons in system pop ups

All versions
The "disabled buttons" issue is a new feature introduced with macOS Catalina. It is available in the latest macOS too.
A permission-requesting pop-up (window, panel, etc.) must not be overlapped by another app window. For example, any window dragged above the permission panel will disable its buttons. So on-screen assistive apps (like screen shades, mouse crosshairs and locators, etc.) should be toggled off until the user choose the permission action.
The easiest way to deal with this issue is to disable the running tools:
  1. To disable them, press the related hotkeys: "⌃⌘⌥ Space", "⌃⌘⌥ H", "⌘⌥ /".
    Or deselect the related checkboxes in the app menu (in the menu bar extras).
  2. Click on the chosen button inside the system notification popup.
  3. Use the related hotkeys or checkboxes to enable the tools again.

myPoint and Apple silicon

v2.27 & next
