Customizable Shortcuts for Tools

Adobe Photoshop

You can easily change the shortcut assigned to a Tool using Photoshop’s Keyboard shortcut editor (Edit > Keyboard Shortcuts) but you’ll quickly find that most of the letters in the alphabet are already taken. Of course you can reassign shortcuts for tools that you don’t use, but it might be easier to assign “N”  or “K”  since they are not already being used as part of the default set.

For example, I find it helpful to assign “K” to bring up the Color Picker, and “N” for my Mixer Brush.

    Can we have search field in keyboard shortcuts dialog as in new Illustrator. It will be nice to quick find command and remind shortcut or to assign new, Photoshop have more and more commands, who is going to remember all shortcuts, especially when using Creative Suite or Creative Cloud.

        I posted idea. This is not my first time to share idea on Adobe forums and but usually I do not have big success with ideas so I wanted to draw your attention to this one.
