European Keyboard Move/Select Layer Up/Down Workaround

Version 2

    For any European keyboard users who can't use the Alt/Opt + [ / ] (or the other variations), I've made an Action Set which includes the following:

     

    • Select Forward Layer (Alt + ])
    • Select Backward Layer (Alt + [)
    • Add Forward Layer (Alt + Shift + ])
    • Add Backward Layer (Alt + Shift + [)
    • Move Forward Layer (Ctrl + ])
    • Move Backward Layer (Ctrl + [)

     

    Instructions:

     

    1. Download Move One Layer.atn.zip
    2. Extract the zip folder's contents (Move One Layer.atn) to Photoshop's *Actions folder
    3. Load the ATN file (see image below)
    4. Set keyboard shortcuts for each Action in the set, or;
    5. For use within an Action of your own:

     

    • Expand the appropriate Action's contents and duplicate the step
    • Drag the duplicate step to the correct position within your own Action.

    Hope this helps!
