Changing key to toggle between loupe and thumbnails

Jul 31, 2012 1:34 PM

Well, of late, the answer to pretty much everything I'm asking about customizing LR has been "NO", but I'm hoping this one can be done...

 

Is there a way to set LR so the spacebar toggles between the single image loupe view and the thumbnail grid?  This is how Bridge works, and having to hit the spacebar to get a single image, then hit the "g" to go back to thumbnails is a bother...  Any way to do this customization?

    Probably not much better, but pressing Enter repeatedly switches from Grid to Loupe to 1:1 to Grid to Loupe to ...

    Or E to go to Loupe and G to go back.

     

    What are you using Bridge for if you have Lightroom?

    I didn't intend to start a urination match. You did notice the wink-smilie, didn't you?

    A key to set the label "special"

     

    There is no "special" label, and there is no "custom" label.  All that means is that the "Label" metadata field is populated with a word that isn't in the current Label Set.  What word would you have it put there for "Custom" when it means "any word except one of the five in the current set"?

    Or just double-click.

    There's also Enter and Escape. They might feel a little more intuitive (and

    physically more accessible on the keyboard) than E and G.

    I'm not concerned about what the color label is CALLED, I'd just like a way to set the one that defaults to "special", which is a medium purple...  I can press 6 - 9 to set red, yellow, green, blue, which is fine, and I use those for specific purposes.  But, it would be nice to be able to to set the other label without having to go into the Photo menu and open color label, and select "special"...

     

    Not a big thing, just one of those "would be nice to be able to do" things...

     

    So, you're talking about purple, not custom.  You can click it in the tool bar - no menu access required.

    See this thread for hints about how to define a custome keyboard shortcut for the purple label:
