Keyboard shortcuts in Photo CS6 not working correctly.

Jul 14, 2012 2:20 AM

Keyboard shortcuts are working sporadically. For instance, when using select all, copy, paste shortcuts to copy from one image to another in a different tab it can take 2 presses of the keyboard to get them to work. This also makes actions unuseable.


Using MacPro 2.66 Nehalem 8 core, OS 10.6.8, 32GB RAM, ATI Radeon HD 4870


Have tried:


Adjusting Performance in preferences -currently 25062 memory usage, history states 20, cache levels8, cache level 1024, use graphics processor ticked. Have changed all of these settings with no effect on problem.


Closed all other programs(including all browsers).


Removed any plug-ins.


Closed flash panels namely mini bridge.



Having to revert to an older version of Photoshop at the moment as dodgy Keyboard shortcuts make CS6 unuseable. Also have a problem with Camera Raw which I have raised in another Discussion that makes it unuseable also.


Suggestions welcomed.

    Hello, do you have other stuff running, like evernote, textexpander? I know you have closed other programs, but sometimes, we forget those that run in the background.

    Downloading latest version from Adobe worked for me. Try this before throwing away preferences. It could save your customisations and therefore a lot of time and angst.
