Title: Keyboard shortcuts
Post by: Rhossydd on February 20, 2007, 05:41:36 AM
Does anyone know if there are keyboard shortcuts for switching between modules ?

I've found http://labs.adobe.com/technologies/lightro..._shortcuts.html (http://labs.adobe.com/technologies/lightroom/keyboard_shortcuts.html) but that only gives details of keyboard shortcuts within each module. Surely there's a way to switch from the library to develop and back again without using a mouse ?

I use "G" to go to grid view (Library) and "D" after I select a picture to go to "Develop". I picked these up by hanging around the Adobe Lightroom Beta Forums  

Still learning all there is to do

Same here, but it would be nice if these sort of things were well documented.

Help > Library Shortcuts for a list of the shortcuts you can use in the library module.

CMD + / will open a list of shortcuts in any module for that module.

CMD + OPT + Up Arrow will switch back to the last used module.

I agree, Lightroom documentation is inadequate.

Especially as the shortcut I was asking for ISN'T mentioned on that page or any other I could find in the help file or PDF.

I too am stuck without documentation of a method.

I'm trying to figure out how to keyword without using my mouse all the time. I see options for keyword stamping, etc. but so far that is just confusing me.

The ones I use often: G for grid, E for loupe, D for develop.  1-5 for ratings.

Go to Library and click the View menu - you'll see lots of shortcuts listed to the right of the commands.

I too would like to know how to keyword with a shortcut.

Here is a list here with quite a few shortcuts prepared by Victoria Bampton (via www.lightroomextras.com):

Here is another prepared by Ian Lyons, though it is for beta4 and there may be a few changes:

sbressler, I found it through the documentation Richard Marcellus provided.

To go straight into keywording without using your mouse, have the image/s you want selected and hit control+K.

AKA "Command + 1" etc.

In Windows, substitute the control key for the command key.

I'm quite amazed that nobody spotted the shortcuts as listed in the Window menu.
