  • keyboard shortcut problem

    Hi, Normally when I press the alt/opt key and click on the eyeball next to a layer in the layer stack, it hides all other layers except the layer that I clicked on. This keyboard shortcut is not working on the file I am currently working on. It works however on all other files. Any ideas what is wrong? It's frustrating me. I am on a mac using photoshop CC14. Thanks.

    Sorry, I would delete this post but don't know how. I was in quick mask which was why keyboard short cut was not working.

      I hate quick mask!!! sometime it gets activate by mistake. If you are not aware, it creates havoc! things don't work, all sort of crazy stuff. I learned, whenever something funny is going on, my first stop is the quick mask button. Works every time.

        Yep, happened to me too, and I learned it was the quick mask (press q to deactivate it).

          Lost keyboard Shortcut
          by Ken Fournelle
          I appear to have lost a keyboard shortcut. Specifically, selecting the hi-lights in an image. On a Mac, Option+Control+tilde. I looked under keyboard shortcuts, but can find how to return to this feature. Can anyone help?

          Keyboard Issue with CS6
          by AKMac
          I've only recently upgraded to CS6, and I'm having a problem that I can't understand or solve. Annoyingly, it isn't happening all the time. When I hit a key (for example the spacebar, to access the Hand Tool) or when I double click a layer to rename it and try to start typing, I get an alert sound when...

          Keyboard shortcut question.
          by Siciliana
          Anyone know if there is any way to check for certain (apart from going through the whole list), to see if a keyboard shortcut is already occupied? I mean, I know I can just try it, but if it is already occupied by a modifier key, it could be confusing. Sometimes, I want to add a shortcut that isn't...

          Shortcut for Layer Switching
          by galvaros
          Dear all

          Is there a photoshop keyboard shortcut to switch the currently selected layer in the layer stack? I.e. one shortcut for "one layer up", one shortcut for "one layer down".

          The use would be this: quickly switching between the dodge and burn curve...

          Disable ALT+[ keyboard short cut?
          by lukasdp
          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?
