    As a working professional with demanding production requirements, my workflow runs on keyboard shortcuts. I’m excited about many of the improvements to LR4 but the one shortcut I’ve been most hoping for is not included.

    There is no keyboard shortcut for firing the camera remotely when tethered. The user must use the mouse to click on the button in the Tether dialog box. This can be awkward and slow production down, especially when working with a 2 monitor setup and you need to quickly fire a shot without having to search for where the cursor is on your screen and then navigate to the Tether dialog box and click the button. A keyboard shortcut would really speed things up when you’re shooting 50+ shots a day.

    It doesn’t seem that the software engineering would be so difficult to Implement. I know that Capture One has had this ability since before LR introduced tethered capture.

      Rico,
      Can you please post this request to the LR4 Beta Forum so that the engineering team and other photographers can view and add their comments?

    the book module sounds interesting at the moment i export the images and use iPhoto, having it integrated would be a nice option

    Hi. Is there a simple letter keyboard shortcut or command to switch to the book module from the develop or library modules? I see that there is Command+Option+4, and that the other modules use that as well, but I like using “E” or “D” or “G” to get where I want to go.

    Thanks!

    Hey, do you have a short cut to crop to 8×10?

    Julieanne…when will LR4 support (allow downloads from) the new Canon EOS 5D Mark III? Thanks much.
