Maps: Move Shortcuts are among the most basic and most frequent functions in the User Interface of JOSM. They are defaulted to ^+arrow keys. But these key combinations are reserved in OXS Mac for important standard functions.

I've tried to redefine these keys in JOSM Preferences but it did not work. I've tried with the combinations of other function keys (like alt, Shift, Command) and with only the arrow keys themselves but they did not work. The only way I was able to move remap them if I switch off OSX own default Shortcuts and use JOSM original/default ones. But as I mentioned it is more than inconvenient from the usecase of Mac point of view.

Please correct this error and make possible to redefine these Shortcuts in JOSM preference panel.

It would help JOSM Mac users relevantly and make their Map Editing significantly easier.

Thx, gobftald

I think it would be best if you open a "ticket" for this issue to let the developers know - see (if I remember correctly you need to make a new account there). After you did, please mention the ticket's URL/number here.
