The QuickSilver Files: Grabbing the Universe

The first of many, many posts on the subtleties of QuickSilver.

When you have something (anything, really) focused on the screen (i.e., a folder in Finder), you can drag it into the QuickSilver universe by hitting the CTRL-ESC keystroke. That opens QuickSilver with the selected object ready for action.

OK, i tried this, but nothing. How can I figure out if QS is properly bound to C-esc, or if something else is grabbing the keystroke?

Apple-Esc worked for me.

neither the post or the comment recommendation worked. i wonder if that has changed in Mavericks.
