Disable ALT+[ keyboard short cut?

Hi all, occasionally I will accidentally hit the key combo ALT+[ and thus change which layer I'm working on. I can't find it listed anywhere in the keyboard edits menu and am curious if you know how I can go about disabling it?
thanks!

Look under "shortcuts for applications menu"
and it's quite a way down.

I've just tried it on my versrsion and using either Ctrl or Alt moves the layers up or down, so don't know the answer your looking for, maybe change that one and it changes both????
Sorry it didn't help you.

hey, thanks for all the help.
CTRL+[ moves the actual layer while ALT+[ only alters which later is selected. They do different things and its odd I can only change one of them.

Re: Disable ALT+[ keyboard short cut?

Lukasdp, I believe that shortcuts that are Alt + something are hard coded in PS. I am not sure if they can be modified. However I am sure that you can NOT define or change a keyboard shortcut in the Edit > Keyboard shortcuts to have an Alt + charachter. You must use it in conmjunction with Ctrl.
Regards, Murray

I also think they're hardcoded.

However I just thought of a workaround, but it'll only work on Windows (since I have no clue about Mac scripting; a script that remaps the [Alt]+[[] to another sequence that does nothing).

I'm not sure this will work, as all custom keyboard shortcuts have to have CTRL first, I think??
