Rotating Images in Lightroom Classic

Adobe Lightroom Classic

Command + [ and ]  (Mac) | Control + [ and ] (Win) rotates a photograph 90° clockwise / counter clockwise. This works in both the Library and Develop modules in Lightroom Classic.

    Hm… I am sorry for this, but honestly it doesn’t work for me… 🙁

      It might be that you are on a different language keyboard. If so, select the Photo menu – the rotate commands will have their keyboard shortcut listed next to the menu item.

    Hey, doesn’t work for me either.
    Win10, LR Classic CC, US and hungarian (switchable) keyboard.

    Btw. Ctrl and Win key are not language sensitive.

    Photo menu tells that I have to use CTRL+[ or CTRL+], but my hungarian keyboard doesn’t have native ] and [ key, only the US has, so I always have to change between the two keyboards :-/

    It would be great, if shortcuts are editable.
