Ctrl + Spacebar does not maximize Python Console
Confirmed, NormalPublicBUG

Description

System Information
Operating system: Windows-10-10.0.17763-SP0 64 Bits
Graphics card: GeForce GTX 1660 Ti/PCIe/SSE2 NVIDIA Corporation 4.5.0 NVIDIA 442.50

Blender Version
Broken: version: 2.83.1, branch: master, commit date: 2020-06-25 09:47, hash: rB8289fc688b3e
Worked: (newest version of Blender that worked as expected)

Short description of error
Ctrl + Spacebar does not maximize Python Console, instead it just inserts spaces on the current line
of the console as if Ctrl was not pressed. On the other hand however rightclicking on the header and
selecting maximize works as expected.

Exact steps for others to reproduce the error
Switch to the Scripting workspace, hover your mouse over the python console, and press Ctrl + Spacebar

Cannot reproduce (tested 2.83, 2.83.1 and 2.90).

Please try with File → Defaults → Load Factory Settings to see if you still can reproduce this issue.

I reloaded Factory settings. The issue still persists. Ctrl + Spacebar does not maximize python console.
I have uploaded a screen recording

.
Thanks

Thx checking that, still cannot reproduce though.

Wow, I have tried it on my PC and my office workstation; I wonder if it could be something with my system setup.

Thank you.

Isn't the shorcut CTRL + ALT + SPACEBAR for the python console & text editor ?

Oh, I did not know that, just tried Ctrl + alt + spacebar and it produced the expected result.

Thanks for the info @NH(Gorgious)

Ctrl + spacebar is already captured by another operator in those editors and still works if you leave the cursor over the header.
Ctrl + alt + spacebar is another shortcut to call the Maximize Area.

We could change the order of the keyitens to display Ctrl + alt + spacebar as the button shortcut.
But this is a request for modified/improved behavior and not a bug in current behavior.

Closing as this bug tracker is only for bugs and errors.

Which one? For me it works as "Maximize Area".

Ctrl + Alt + Spacebar is another shortcut to call the Maximize Area.

Ctrl + Spacebar and Ctrl + Alt + Spacebar are different, "Maximize Area" and "Fullscreen Area".

Ctrl + Spacebar and Ctrl + Alt + Spacebar are different, "Maximize Area" and "Fullscreen Area".

In fact the same operator, but with different properties.

I will wait for a second opinion then.
