Problems with conflicting global shortcuts - Yakuake F12

Hey guys;

I migrated to Zorin OS 17 Pro but have problems with Yakuake - which is my daily used terminal - but the default shortcut key for open/close the Terminal "F12" seems to be blocked somehow with an conflicting global shortcut (dont says what). So no changes are maid but the F12 seems useless otherwise (other than browser tools) with Zorin 16 its just a primary global shortcut so if i click F12 only Yakuake appear (when active in background) and nothing else. I search for shortcuts but don't found anything for F12.

Go to Zorin menu > Settings > Keyboard Shortcuts and peruse that long list for any that use  F12  (and only  F12 , not, for instance,  Super + F12 ), and disable it when found.

I searched for Keyboard Shortcuts but there is none with F12 not even where it is a part of. And i go with other shortcuts as well but it doesn't work too.

I start Yakuake from Terminal too and got Warning: Ignoring XDG_SESSION_TYPE=wayland on Gnome. Use QT_QPA_PLATFORM=wayland to run on Wayland anyway. as Output. So maybe it's something with Wayland?

When i'm focused on the opened Yakuake Terminal the Shortcut would work but i can't open the Terminal (cause it is minimized and so i can't focus on it). And exec env QT_QPA_PLATFORM=wayland yakuake don't change the warning or behaviour. Not quite sure how to fix it under wayland or if i need to migrate to another dropw-down terminal. I just expected that Wayland is now stable enough.

Since I run the stock Gnome DE, I am not familiar with Yakuake. But its Gnome sibling Guake definitely has keybinding problems under Wayland, so it would not surprise me if the KDE equivalent Yakuake followed suit.

Unfortunately, there are still plenty of hiccups with Wayland that I am not willing to deal with at this point. You might want to consider switching to until it is up to speed. It will undoubtedly save you a headache or two.
