"Disable OS Keyboard Shortcuts not working"

Post 1.5.2

I checked the box but I can still Command+Tab out of SC2. Also, is this option also supposed to disable Command+Q
Was this working before?

And no, Command-Q is never disabled.
That's the odd thing. It worked for one session in 1.5.1, but the next time I logged in it wasn't working. Honestly, I just realized there was a disable OS shortcuts recently. I thought checking the box would turn off the ability to tab through program. But this is low priority. It's not like the game is unplayable
I do know that for this option, it may require enabling access for assistive devices. Can you try that?

Yes, the box is checked and Command+Tab still takes me out of SC2.
I checked with our team about that shortcut specifically, and no, Command-Tab is not disabled when this is selected. Here are the shortcuts that will never be disabled when this option is selected:

  • Command-Tab
  • Command-H
  • Command-M
  • Command-Q
thanks for clarifying.
I cannot seem to disable os shortcuts... I have OS shortcuts disabled, and the correct box checked under assistive devices. I am running OSX 10.8.2 on a macbook pro retina, the shortcuts I am having problems with are the "F" keys, when ever I try to select SCV with F1 I just dim my screen. Short of using an external keyboard what are some suggestions?
The Disable shortcuts key won't affect the F keys. You have to change them to standard inputs.

Go to your Apple Menu => System Preferences => Keyboard => Keyboard Tab:

Put a check mark in the Use all F1,F2, etc. keys as standard function keys.

Keep in mind that this is going to require the use of the FN key in order to adjust screen brightness or sound volume.
