    I've upgraded yesterday from parallels 14 to 16 and now unfortunately ctrl+space is not working in the vm (especially in eclipse).

    My keyboardsettings are set to "optimized for games" and I've also a mapping form ^+space to ctrl+space (this was definied before the upgrade).

    Has anybody an idea how to get ctrl+space working again?

    I forgot to mention that I did also an upgrade to MacOS Big Sur...

    To get ctrl+space working agin I had to:
    - open system preferences (on macos)
    - goto keyboard
    - check shortcuts where ctrl+space is used and disable the entries

    now I can use ctrl+space in eclipse inside my vm as usual.

    Thanks AlBundy! I recently upgraded to Parallels 16 and Big Sur too, and I had the same issue. There was a new entry about going back in input sources which was bound to CTRL (^) + SPACE.

    Well, I've tried all of the above, including shutting down my Windows VM. Still can't get my Embarcadero to recognize CTRL SPACE. The only hint I have that it might not be the fault of Parallels is that the drop-down menu from that software (which is marked CTRL SPACE) also doesn't work... hmmm...
