Adobe Photoshop Layers (204), Masking (72) by Julieanne Kost Posted on 04-25-2016 Prev Next Comments By Jose Aleman - 6:58 AM on April 25, 2016 This (keystrokes) looks exactly the same to me… Is there an error, or just me? By Julieanne Kost - 8:11 PM on April 25, 2016 My error, sorry, it’s corrected now. By Benny - 8:45 AM on April 25, 2016 International keyboard short cut sets would be a wonderful addition. This is one of the short cuts that just dosen’t work on non-english keyboards. Your colleagues working on InDesign have solved the issue by shipping the InDesign app with all international versions of short cuts. Maybe Photoshop would be updated to become a bigger key monster in the future? By Kate Jones - 12:44 PM on April 25, 2016 Thanks Julieanne these tips are really helpful.
