Custom shortcut not working

I added the custom keyboard shortcut OPTION + SHIFT + R to hide rests, but it does not work.
So I tried a different one: OPTION +CONTROL + R and this does work.
I know, it is not a big deal, but just to know if there are any particular rules to follow.

PS: I have an Italian keyboard but the OS and Dorico are in English.

I’ve set mine on ctrl-r (mac) and it’s been working flawlessly for years…
You have to be really careful that the shortcut is not already used in Dorico or by the system.

Or by the system? Well, that’s interesting, I wonder if and what cmd-shift-r does to a mac.
Anyway your choice is a good one, so I copied it. Thank you!

Since I only use a midi keyboard–all of my note entry keys are available. I use e for removing rests, a = transpose, b = beam, c = cut beams.
