Adding Custom Keyboard Shortcuts to Workspaces in Photoshop

Adobe Photoshop

Did you know that you can add custom keyboard shortcuts to toggle between your custom Workspaces? To do this,  arrange your panels as desired, then choose Window > Workspace > New Workspace, name your workspace and click OK. Then choose Edit > Keyboard Shortcuts (or Window > Workspace > Keyboard Shortcuts & Menus) Select “Shortcuts For”Application Menus (see illustration below), toggle the disclosure triangle next to Window and scroll down to see your custom workspace. Click in the blank area on the right and add your custom shortcut.

    Is there a facility in LR to create custom key short cuts or disable them?

    Cool info! Thanks for this. I have a question though: Is it possible to have custom shortcuts that just work for a particular workspace?

    Example: In Workspace A, the default shortcut for “Copy” is Command+C. Can I change it to work as say Command+X in Workspace B?

    Or will the shortcuts work universally on all Workspaces?
    Would love your input.

      When you save a workspace you can check the box to save the shortcuts and menus specifically for that workspace.
