Switch on Caps Lock, or Photos > Auto Advance
Thanks John for your quick reply.
Caps Lock (surprisingly) does not work (am on a Macbook Pro) and AutoAdvance only advances photos when I click on the star rating, so does not seem to have key board functionality (when I use Shift + 1 for example, the next photo does not automatically come up... again pretty weird).
(Adobe Bridge by the way perfectly accepts the 1,2,3... keys without needing to hit the Shift button)
When Caps Lock is on, you only need to press 0 to 5 and it should advance to the next picture. In this mode, Shift + Number suppresses the auto advance and keeps you on the current picture .
Thanks John, it would be fantastic if that worked. Capslock, I tried it right away actually but surprisingly Lightroom would not take it (and makes the difference between Shift + 1 (where it works) and Capslock +1 (where I get a beep and nothing happens). The Autoadvance function only works when I apply the star-rating using the mouse (Shift + 1 does rate the photo, but does not advance to the next one)
Guess there's quite a few bugs in the software... hope for some update soon
Anyway, many thanks, Martin
Just a thought, what language is your system / Lightroom? I wonder if that may make a difference.
You are spot on. I am in France, using a French keyboard (where the numbers indeed are done with Shift...).
Adobe Bridge realizes that and allows me (in full screen) not to hit Shift (nor Cmd)... Lightroom not... yet (I suppose :-)
Having investigated a bit on different topics I realize that I could do the star rating right on with Lightroom Mobile on my iPhone (and then sync back), that's even easier.
Just tried it out... it works perfectly (for one photo). Now, trying to have that applied to several.
I saw your blog on that topic and will try out the sync software...
Thanks for the great insight
It almost worked... thy sync software looks great... but when I pushed the button to sync it won't allow me to sync from JPG to JPG (what I would like to do just to sync the star ratings)... snif
