During the installation of Fedora, I set two keyboard layouts: Norwegian and English. I was asked what shortcut to define for switching keyboard layouts, and I set it to Ctrl+Shift. Now that I have installed the Atom IDE, I cannot use Atom's shortcuts such as Ctrl+Shift+A (Add new project), etc. so I went into Fedora's settings menu (Settings->Region and Language->Input Sources Options) and it said go to keyboard settings. So I go there and go to remove the shortcuts, "Alternative switch to next input source" is not in the list, just "Switch to next input source" (Super+Space). How do I remove the Ctrl+Shift shortcut? Thanks in advance :)

Install gnome-tweak-tool if you don't have it already. Open it, go to the Typing section and it's probably the Switching to another layout options that you're looking for.

Well, it's a very non-intuitive workaround, but it's all there is since the option isn't in the keyboard shortcuts. The workaround I found was (In a terminal) xkbopts="/org/gnome/desktop/input-sources/xkb-options" (for convenience) then doing dconf read $xkbopts and type dconf write followed by the output of that minus 'grp:ctrl_shift_toggle'. However, if you only have that one (like I did) you'd still have to put empty quotes, ike so: dconf write $xkbopts "['']". Really complicated workaround for a bug, but it works now.

You could use the dconf-editor to do that a lot easier.
