    Why wouldn’t the keyboard shortcuts be the same in Camera RAW and LightRoom?
    What sense is made by the teams not making such a choice?

      A lot of thought is put into selecting shortcuts in different applications. While in a perfect world they might all match, each product team selects the shortcuts that they feel are best for their customer. For example, in Lightroom I use the shortcut “G” all day long to return to grid view from any of the modules, so I don’t want the Graduated Filter to steal that shortcut. On the other hand, Since PS/ACR doesn’t have a Grid view, it is the easiest shortcut for most peole to remember (G for graduated).
