I'm on a Mac with Snow Leopard and it seems like there is some global keyboard shortcut overriding Image > Canvas Size. I'm guessing because in Safari the Console won't open either.
When i check in System Preferences > Keyboard > Shortcuts I can't find the problem.

Is there another location for global shortcuts or is this problem caused by something else entirely?

  • The Canvas Size dialogue still opens from the menu, correct? Have you tried changing the shortcut to something else? And how does the Safari Console relate to this problem?

  • it's also ⌘+⌥+C to open console in safari. creating a new shortcut works ok but i want to know where the problem is. that shortcut is used in many programs...

  • I thought that was the case but wasn't sure. Since it appears some other program is superceding your PS shortcut, this isn't really on-topic at GD.SE. I'm going to send it over to Super User for you. Good luck!

Different things you could try:

  • Quit background applications like Alfred or Keyboard Maestro
  • Check if the keys are shown as pressed in Keyboard Viewer (/System/Library/Input Methods/KeyboardViewer.app)
  • Test if it works with other keyboards
  • Test if it works on another account or a guest account
