Shortcut for new folder not working?

Shift + cmd + N for new folder does not seem to work for me with PF 6.0.2. When I press those keys, nothing happens. Other shortcuts do work fine (e.g. alt + cmd + N for new text file).

Could you guys help me troubleshoot this problem?

    Is that the right shortcut shown in File > New Folder?

    Try to change it to a different key combination in Preferences > Features > Keyboard to troubleshoot.

    Alright. Changed it. Since I don't need the terminal very often, I deleted that shortcut and use that now for creation of a new folder.

    Thanks for the hint. I wish OS X had a way to clearly display when keyboard shortcuts already exist or collide with other softare...

    All the best :)
