  • PS CS keyboard shortcuts (vs. actons)

    CS has a new feature where one can associate a keyboard shortcut to a menu command. Although more limited this has been possible with actions for quite some time.

    Suppose one associates SHIFT + F6 to Image > Adjustments > Desaturate using the new CS keyboard shortcut assignment mechanism. Suppose further one records an action that applies the Gaussian blur filter and, through the Actions Option dialog, assigns SHIFT + F6 to play that action.

    QUESTION: What happens when SHIFT + F6 is pressed?
    a. Desatuate command is applied
    b. Gaussian Blur action plays?

    When SHIFT + F6 is assigned either place, is SHIFT + F6 then "unavailable" in either place?

    Curious minds want to know. Something to try when you get bored.

    Hello.. as far as I know, you won't be allowed to allocate two functions for the same shortcut...

    Yes, I checked on Dave Cross's video about shortcuts at

    Normally, Trevor Morris from GFX^TM will post soon its shortcut lists for PS CS, along with a custom .kys shortcut file...
