Basically almost all the keys that use alt are broken.
The rule for Save for Web is: if you press alt first, it won't work. If you press Ctrl first, it will work.
You are right, thank you Sergey!
Haven't tried other shortcuts, but most of the times, alt double click delete (or backspace) will work. If that doesn't work, try double alt, then delete or backspace (I never use backspace 'cause it triggers a "ding" sound on my system). It seems that the alt key notifies PhotoShop to change the current form of the selected tool and doesn't release it.
Please fix this adobe. It is really annoying
This is really frustrating. I have been pressing the shorcuts like 5 times to make it work. I can't remember where I can find them in the menu anymore since I use the shorcuts so much. (Alt+Del 5 times tto make it work)
I hope adobe fixes this issue soon.
Nearly a month after release and no fix rolled out? Inadequate testing on a major release? I am hoping you have a broad range of actual users on staff testing your release candidates and not just QA, managers and programmers. Based on this past release, the evidence tells us this couldn't be true. Unless somehow none of them tried any of these hotkeys?
ALT combinations work only if ALT is pressed after all other keys.
And I tried changing my keyboard shortcuts. And there is no way to do ctrl+shift+S. It does not register. You have to change it to Ctrl+Alt+S instead, or something different. Very stupid
Also, there is no 19.0.1 for pc. Just 19.0
(November 16 2017)
(I also posted this in a 'photoshop family' forum - sorry if this is cross-posting)
Is there a 19.0.1 release coming for CC 2018 (Windows 10)? CC says I have the latest (19.0) but I definitely have keyboard shortcuts mapping incorrectly even after doing a preferences reset. The mappings look as expected, but the commands that are executed are incorrect (e.g., Shift-F5 executes Select-Grow). (note that I tried all the workarounds I could find - closing other apps, ensuring Wacom was not enabled, etc.).
même problème ...
le raccourci clavier Shift+F5 ne fonctionne pas.
une mise à jour serait la bienvenue
The same problem...
The hot key Shift+F5 does not work.
An update would be welcome
The issue was fixed in 19.0.1 and it was only about shortcuts with Alt key in them. So Shift+F5 not working is a separate issue. Maybe there's a different reason why it doesn't work? Some other software uses it? Function doesn't start because of error?
Here's one of the last emails I had with Adobe (and by the way - the command set is supplied by Adobe - they logged a bug for this):
Edit: I just found this in a search (written in 2009):
"Somehow (like me), you probably loaded a set of actions called "Commands," which contains lots of keyboard shortcuts for things like cut, copy, paste, etc. The specific command for "grow" is Shift+F5. You can either remove that action specifically, or you can remove the whole "Commands" set by clicking on the trash icon at the bottom of th e Actions pallette."
And indeed, these actions are all under a set named 'Commands.' If they are not out of the box, I wonder where they came from ...
Last edit: I found the 'actions - reset actions.' Problems should be solved now. Still no idea what installed those but I think I'm good. Thanks!!
There is no 19.0.1 version, just 19.0, checked right now.
I'm running 19.1.0 and CTRL+E is still not working to merge layers, even though it's listed in the shortcut manager and has been a shortcut for a very long time.
Anyone else having an issue with this shortcut?
Logic would dictate that if saying "upgrade to 19.0.1 will fix the problem" and you're on 19.1.0, you're on a newer release and the fix should be there... but it is not.
I have this problem.
I'm running InDesign 13.0.1 and Photoshop 19.1.0 — Ctrl+E (export to PDF in InDesign) stopped working for the 2nd time in just a few days. Last week I contacted Adobe support and they reset all of my preferences / defaults, which did fix the problem, but am I supposed to reset them several times a week? I use Ctrl+E dozens of times a day, in Photoshop as well, and it's also not working there either.
Nothing wrong with my keyboard — in fact, this same problem happened with my previous computer, so it's clearly not anything with my setup.
I wish I knew why this was happening.
For me, zoom (Z key) in particular has been buggy, across multiple computers and multiple versions of photoshop. I hit 'Z', the magnification eyeglass icon appears, but my tool remains as whatever it was before I hit z.
1. clone stamp tool active (for example)
2. Hit 'z'
3. see zoom icon
4. click on image
5. Photoshop clone stamps instead of zooms.
I have to hit z multiple times, un-doing the unintentional tool clicks, before I can start actually zooming.
I also frequently have trouble with the bracket [ ] keys to adjust brush size. Often enough, either NOTHING happens, or I get the system error beep.
I am curious in some of these cases if the "Focus" of the app is being interrupted.
And if you turn this off do you still have issues?
Or if you want to take it a step further, open the Preferences and Turn Off/Uncheck Extensions.
Please keep in mind if you turn these off it will disable the Library Panel and other 3rd Party Extensions. They will not be avaible in the Photoshop user interface until they are enabled again in the Preferences.
If you turn Extensions off do you still have issues?
