Rotation Shortcuts

Post by chuckhebert40 » 07 Apr 15 12:05

In the document PhotoSupremeV3_KeyboardShortcuts.pdf, in the Collection Viewer section, it mentions use of the "[" and "]" keys to rotate images/thumbnails, and these are obviously the recognised shortcut keys based on mentions in various forum postings.

The document also mentions use of the "^" and "$" keys as alternatives. These don't work for me. However, what I have found is that on my machine (Windows 64bit, English keyboard), the "o" and "p" keys (i.e. lower case) do the same as "[" and "]". Is this supposed to happen? I'd rather it didn't - having one pair of widely recognised shortcut keys seems enough.

On a UK keyboard these are shift+number, so they will start external programs (if configured).
(Windows 64bit, English keyboard), the "o" and "p" keys (i.e. lower case) do the same as "[" and "]".
Same happens here (I'm also on Win64 with UK keyboard). I agree that it doesn't seem logical.

The alternative shortcuts are for other keyboard layouts. For instance; [ and ] are not standard keys on a french keyboard. And $ is but that doesn't work on a Us keyboard because there $ is a shift combination which isn't the same as a single $ key on a french keyboard.

Thanks for explanation, Hert - the difficulties of catering for everyone!
