How do I turn off the screen capture feature in Sims4 on a Mac?

How do I turn off the screen capture feature in Sims4 on a Mac? Every time I press Command, Shift it automatically screenshots it and I want to turn that feature off? Like all users we want to use this function for other things. Not screen shotting.

Taking screenshots in game is done by pressing C.

Taking screenshots in macOS is CMD, Shift and 3 or 4 or 5.

Have you changed the default settings in System Preferences > Keyboard > Keyboard Shortcuts > Screenshots?

@Bluebellflora Do you know how to turn off the screen captures on Windows- instead of Mac?

Nope. You should ask in the PC tech forum https://answers.ea.com/t5/Technical-Issues-PC/bd-p/The-Sims-4

@Bluebellflora It's cmd+shift+3
It can be changed in system preferences -> keyboard -> shortcuts
It can be changed to something else or disabled entirely (untick the box).

Hi, this shortcut is related to MAC keyboard although she's wondering about the shortcut in the game, which I'm having the same issue. 

 

I could notice the command + shift + C makes screenshots when inside the game when I want to open the cheat box instead. 

 

I thought this could be because Macbook keyboard for screenshots have the same shortcut but no. Shortcuts are differents. So i guess I'll need to change the shortcut for screenshot in the game. Would you know how to proceed with it?

 

Cheers

@SGLBL

You should just be able to press the letter C in-game to take screenshots.

The cheat box is brought up by pressing CTRL, Shift and C, even on Macs. If you need to press CMD, Shift and C it could be because the modifier keys in System Preferences have been changed?
