  • Disable ALT+[ keyboard short cut?

    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?
    thanks!

    Look under "shortcuts for applications menu"
    and it's quite a way down.

            I've just tried it on my versrsion and using either Ctrl or Alt moves the layers up or down, so don't know the answer your looking for, maybe change that one and it changes both????
            Sorry it didn't help you.

              hey, thanks for all the help.
              CTRL+[ moves the actual layer while ALT+[ only alters which later is selected. They do different things and its odd I can only change one of them.

                Lukasdp, I believe that shortcuts that are Alt + something are hard coded in PS. I am not sure if they can be modified. However I am sure that you can NOT define or change a keyboard shortcut in the Edit > Keyboard shortcuts to have an Alt + charachter. You must use it in conmjunction with Ctrl.

                  I also think they're hardcoded.

                  However I just thought of a workaround, but it'll only work on Windows (since I have no clue about Mac scripting; a script that remaps the [Alt]+[[] to another sequence that does nothing).

                    I'm not sure this will work, as all custom keyboard shortcuts have to have CTRL first, I think??

                      Maybe you could create an action to do what you wanted the shortcut to do an simply set it on button mode so it will do it as a single click just a thought

                        I was talking about a script that runs on Windows level and therefore would prevent Photoshop from ever noticing you hit that shortcut ;-).

                        Anyways you'd need AutoHotkey installed (freeware, you can get it here: http://www.autohotkey.com/).
                        Now just create a new file called PSBlock.ahk in your autorun folder and put the following line into it
                        Code:
                        Alt & [::

                          Configuring LR Shortcuts :)
                          by Quantum3
                          Hey pals, I have found something very interesting when I was wondering how the hell configuring the LR Shortcuts. For example, I'm a fan of exporting as smart objects into PS, but seems that such shortcut doesn't exist and LR doesn't allow creating/modifying shortcuts. However, Steve Jobs did it for...

                          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 short cut help - zooming
                          by kyleb
                          I can't seem to find this shortcut. I have done this by accident many times, but don't know what I did.

                          Let say Im using the brush tool or any tool zoomed in very close. I may need to quickly see where I am in the shot and just want to zoom out completely(to see the full image) and...

                          by Guest
                          I hope someone here can help me. I had to reinstall PS7 and in the process lost all my custom keyboard commands. Problem is, I made them quite a while ago and have FORGOTTEN HOW I did it! I looked through both my PS books and can't find where I learned to do this. It's a simple process, as I recall...you...

                          I use the keyboard shortcut Shift+F5 to fill selections. Recently, it no longer works to fill a selection. (I can use the Edit>Fill option). One time I tried using it and it prompted me that "Command Grow" could not be used. Now, when I try Shift+F5 I get a selection of parts of the...
