Every once in a while, my Mac will do this thing where Command+F will no longer work to find/search in any application I use (Atom, Slack, Chrome, etc). Command+G still works in Chrome for "Find Next" as does Command+Shift+F in Atom. The problem seems to be solely limited to Command+F. It doesn't matter which Command key I use (left/right/built-in/external). When I pull up the Keyboard Viewer, the Command keypress registers correctly but not the F
Things I have tried:
- Closing all applications
- Fully restarting. The problem persists across full restarts.
- Resetting all keyboard settings to default
- Uninstalling Karabiner (which I use for a couple of shortcuts unrelated to Command+F)
The problem persists after trying all of the above and usually goes away after a couple of days for seemingly no reason. Has anyone run into this before or can anyone help me diagnose the issue further? This is driving me nuts.
