hey Lisa ... isn't that the one Cj posted..?
it's real good... wish there was a way to print parts larger tho... well guess we just need to pick out what we want and start our own sheet...
at least with myself ... if I have a list pasted on the wall I will use the shortcuts until I get used to them...

Oh cool Greg, I didn't even know those. I will have to remember those.

Thanks for the neat links Lisa.

Hey Ron,

You're right. CJ's link is one and the same.

I did post the full version if you check Pavel's aka Balky Challenge. You'll see the uncropped version

Wow I had a look at the hotkey list that was posted....yikes! It's a great resource but it would take more time and effort to look up a hot key than just use the mouse!

I think I'll start with everyone's favourites that have been posted and slowly add in new ones.

I have to say the tab key and ctrl o are awesome to know! Sure made my life easier last night.

I also use the fills a lot so those hotkeys will come in handy as well.

Keep posting the useful ones.

Oh, I like the square bracket keys [] for changing the brush size... especially useful when working with the trusty old rubber stamp tool!

Heather,
That's how I have been learning them. Just a few important ones at a time until they are second nature. Then I learn a couple more.

Here's my favorite shortcuts:

I use a tablet and pen so I don't like to use my right hand on the keyboard. Also, I use a Mac so these may be different for the windoze folks.

1. command+spacebar+click = zooms in
2. option+spacebar+click = zooms out
3. control+click = brings up the array of brushes
4. command+j = creates a new layer from the current selection
5. when using any paint tool, hold down the option key to temporarily access the eyedropper

The function keys don't work in PhotoShop on a Mac, but you can program the function keys to access your favorite programs.

Hope this helps,
Margaret

Not really a shortcut, but a neat trick:

to draw a straight line in any direction (at any angle) click with the paintbrush where you want the line to start, hold down the shift key and click where you want the line to end.

If you set the spacing on the brush to be about 150, you get perfectly straight dotted line!!
