  • 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.

      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.

      by Jon
      I'm in the process of developing a new action template and I have run across several combinations that will not let me assign an action to it. However, when I look through all the actions, none has used up those spots. I tried one of them, Ctrl-F4 and it attempts to close the file I'm working with....
