Mac OS X ctrl-space doesn't work

I'm on Mac OS X, latest version of everything (just downloaded in last day or so).

I applied Patrick Beard's workaround for the broken 'carriage return', but now it appears ctrl-space capability is not working. Is there a workaround for this problem?

Regards
Charles.

nope. you gotta re map it to something else or wait for the Final Candidate from Apple to get going again.

There were two fixes posted. The second one was listed as simpler and better, but in fact broke Ctrl-Space completion. The first fix didn't. So use the first fix.

Thanks Tim...much better now. For anyone else with this problem, if you search for "801e00c0" in these forums, you will find relevant articles.

I just posted a fix for the 'ctrl-space' not working on a different thread!

Go back to the original file, then...Search for the last occurrence of the hex string:

2c03000a

and replace it with

2c0300ff

This simply changes a comparison of r3 against 0xA (a '\n' character) to a comparison against ff. - 00 is ASCII for ctrl-space.
