Read aloud in Word hijacked ctrl + spacebar shortcut

Post by jmt356 »

Historically, the ctrl + spacebar shortcut removed manual formatting from my text.

Today, the read aloud in Word function hijacked ctrl + spacebar shortcut and now causes that shortcut to read my text aloud.

Under Options | Customize | Customize Keyboard | Review tab | Read aloud, no shortcuts are displayed, so there is nothing to remove.

How can I restore my ctrl + spacebar shortcut to remove manual formatting?
Regards,

JMT

What happens if you click in the 'Press new shortcut key' box and press Ctrl+spacebar? What is listed at 'Currently assigned to'?
(Don't click Assign!)
