Hello, i am testing out Photoshop 5 and it looks good so far, yet some obstacles are left to solve. For example i wonder how to get the keyboard shortcuts from my old Photoshop (the .kys file) into the PS5? There is no import. I would even manually transfer, but opening the file in a texteditor just shows weird stuff (there was a guy who manually transfered his indesign shortcuts in such a way, but since he used a normal text editor i guess these files are of a different structure)
if anyone knows how to transfer them or has an idea how to manually workaround, i am happy for hints.
It depends on which windows system you have, but for vista and windows 7, probably the best
place to put the kys file is:
C:\Users\Your Name\AppData\Roaming\Adobe\Adobe Photoshop CS5\Presets\Keyboard Shortcuts
C:\Documents and Settings\Your Name\Application Data\Adobe\Adobe Photoshop CS5\Presets\Keyboard Shortcuts

(EDIT: Aha, wrong forum I guess, but shouldn’t the *.kys file format be at least the same in Mac / PC?)
Hi, I’m on a Mac and I would also love to transfer my current CS4 Photoshop settings to a CS5 install.
Steps I tried: Save my CS4 keyboard configuration to a my_keys.kys file and put it there:
/Users/<username>/Library/Application Support/Adobe/Adobe Photoshop CS5/Presets/Keyboard Shortcuts
In Photoshop CS5, I can now select the above file in the Edit > Keyboard Shortcuts window. However, to no effect.
There must be a better way...
any help is greatly appreciated!
