Is there a intuitive way to export my personalized keyboard shortcuts from InDesign CS4 to CS5?

 

Thanks in advance.

    Yes, there is a location where this keyboard shortcut get saved , its in the preferenes

     

    Refer to the link:- http://forums.adobe.com/thread/526990 for the location

     

    It would under InDesign Defaults , the folder would be named "Indesign Shortcut Sets" , just copy the file and paste it in the same location for Indesign cs5

    Importing the CS4 shortcuts into CS5 doesn't work. In fact, doing so can break other things.

     

    Best bet is to print out your list from CS4 and systematically rebuild in CS5.

    The reason moving CS4 shortcuts forward doesn't work has to do with changed and new behaviors of some modifier keys. I haven't tried it, but I don't think there is any reason that CS5 shortcuts won't work in CS6.

     

    As far as complete removal of previous versions, all of the experienced users here will tell you that is not required for installation and that your license allows for a transition period where you may keep an old version active. New versions do not disable or conflict with previous versions of ID, and having your old version installed is actually quite important if yiou need to continue to work on legacy documents in the original format or to collaborate with other users who do not have the latest version.

    I wrote a pair of script that cover this case. See my post at the end of Importing CS4 Keyboard Shortcuts to CS5, dated Aug 8, 2011.
