Doesn't work on my keyboard for a change...But doesn't seem like a very useful shortcut anyway as I never select the adjustment layer icon instead of the mask one? Would be nice to have on regular layers

It's actually hell using a british/european mac keyboard after being used to a
US one!

Re: Using the 'tilde' key . . .

I suppose there are going to be a lot of quirky differences on different language keyboards. And sometimes we can get so focused on the keyboard commands that we actually forget what we're doing in real terms. But for educational purposes it's often better to explain the menu commands before going into the shortcuts, aas sometimes the shortcuts don't work -- depending on people's particular configurations, plug-ins, languages, etc. If people only learn the keyboard shortcut, they're lost when the shortcuts don't work.
