If you change the New Layer shortcut to cmd-shift-… and the corresponding shortcut is »free« hitting cmd-alt-shift-… should work.
Otherwise you could still use an Action with a Function Key.
It works partially. The shortcut I'm trying to set is SHIFT+F1 so on PC creating an Action will not work as there's no F1 available (don't think there's a solution to unlocking it which sucks tbh).
I assigned my shortcut to New layer and now Shift+F1 creates a new layer with a dialog box and Shift+Alt+F1 creates it without a dialog box. That's better but still I'd prefer to have Shift+f1 make a layer without the box.
When I record creating a new Layer via the button in the Layers Panel I get no dialog on running the Action.
True. But on PC you can't assign F1 with any modificator to actions. That's why I'm looking for a way to change a default photoshop shortcut for creating a layer without a dialog box (not listed in keyboard shortcuts panel).
