Deleting conflicting keyboard shortcuts

I started using JetBrains’ IDE recently again but Cmd + Shift + A kept triggering something else instead of Find Action.

I got that unwanted shortcut disabled. Here’s how:

  1. Spotlight search (Cmd + Space) “keyboard”
  2. Go to Keyboard Settings...
  3. Go to Keyboard Shortcuts...
  4. Disable the shortcut that’s selected in the screenshot below
