keyboard 'cuts

Mar 29, 2012 3:33 PM

...I've got a huge batch of slide scans that I inadvertantely flipped horizontally...now I find there is no keyboard shortcut for flipping an image that way...I use Adobe Audition and there it's easy to reconfigure keyboard shortcuts, not so Lightroom?  I'm probably missing something easy, betcha...

    Ctr./Cmd. + [ or ] (square bracket) turns the image clockwise / counter-clockwise by 90 degrees.

    You can select multiple images and do Ctrl./Cmd + [ / ] for all of them.

    Yes, there is no keyboard shortcut for flip horizontal/vertical. Lr does not let us create our own shortcuts as Photoshop does, so we're stuck with the shortcuts on offer.

    But still, you can select multiple photos and flip them all together via the menu. I don't think it's a great impediment for working in Lr - after all, how often do you flip a photo?

    Further to my previous post:

    You could make a request for a Lr feature that would let us create our own keyboard shortcuts.

    You find the link for feature requests in the header of this forum.

    You can in fact define or change keyboard shortcuts for many LR commands.  You can edit the file TranslatedStrings.txt and add these two lines:

     

    "$$$/AgLibrary/Menu/Photo/FlipHorizontal/Key=Cmd+Shift+h"

    "$$$/AgLibrary/Menu/Photo/FlipVertical/Key=Cmd+Shift+v"

     

    See these links for help in finding and editing TranslatedStrings.txt:

    You can also try the LR Keyboard Tamer plugin for easier customization of shortcuts. I've found that it doesn't know about at least a couple of commands, and I don't know if it's been upgraded to LR 4.
