ctrl+alt+shift+rightclick, how do I get it back?

Aug 17, 2012 4:08 PM

How do I get back the ability to ctrl+alt+shift+rightclick to select multiple layers that was present up to CS4? Now it just wants to select a color or change the brush size which is useless. Is it a different shortcut now? I dont know why they would get rid of the only way to do something and replace it with something that has several ways of doing something.

    Works identically for me - I just tried it in both Photoshop CS4 and CS6.

     

    I'm on a PC (Windows 7) - what OS are you running?

    Scratch that; I see that it works differently depending on what tool is selected.

     

    I guess that's what you're saying - that it used to work no matter what tool was selected?

    You might try turning on Auto-Select for the move tool, then ctrl+alt+shift+left click should work with the paint tools.

    I used to work with photoshop 7 and I decide to buy CS5 for production... disaster because of this fu***ing shortcuts change.

     

    If you want a solution is to use autohotkey but it's not a really good solution.

     

    ADOBE PLEASE, LET US THE CHOICE or implements pen's shortcuts customization

     

     

    little explanation : before the change ctrl alt + right click was for quickly change the active layer and ctrlaltshif+right click for quickly add/remove a layer to selection with ANY tool

    now with some tools E B ... these shortcuts turn to Brush HUD....

     

    but when you want to quickly paint on a layer, select another to paint on it etc, you need to change to a non-brush tool before each step, it's a nightmare !!!!!!!!!!!!

     

    autoselect option and all I tried can't change that, with autohotkey and the right script it's correct but not so much
