Rotation keystrokes in PS

Ok, when using Transform > Rotate in PS, the arrow keys will move the area up and down, but what keys will do the rotation? Right now I can only use the mouse to rotate, and I'm looking for a mouseless solution.

Hi Doug,
I had the same problem and hunted shortcut and keystrokes lists, but to no avail. I ended up making an action that would rotate images.

I understand that with CS keystroke assignments can be made. I am waiting to get my hands on a copy, so I can't comment specifically.

The only thing I found on the web:

Quote:
F8 - Rotate Canvas
Opens the Rotate Canvas dialog box and allows you enter a value, as well as choose clockwise or counter-clockwise.
I don't know if it's version dependent, because when I tried it in PhotoShop CS it opened up the information palette.

Of course, it's something you can probably assign a keystroke.

You can assign a keystroke to the rotation command, but not to the actual rotating, which is what I'm looking for. You can click in the rotation angle box on the options bar and the arrow keys will then rotate, which is kind of what I need. I'm looking for the keys that will do this without having to click in the options bar.

I don't know if there are keys to help you with that, but a possible solution may be to create actions that rotate the layer 1, 5, 10, & 20 degrees clockwise & counter, then assign function keys to them and repeat as desired. Not very practical, but it's the best I've got.

Right now I've settled on clicking in the rotation angle box and using arrow up and down for .1 degree increments and shift-arrow up and down for 1 degree increments. This only works in transform and rotate mode, there is no angle box if you simply have the bounding box active.

It may take me a while to find it but I ran into the answer to this using keystrokes in the last couple days. When I find it I'll post it here.

Merry Xmas
