Lightroom Classic: Allow for keyboard shortcut customization

Customizable keyboard shortcuts in Lightroom would be great. I just find it so confusing that crop and brush tools and things like that have such odd keyboard shortcuts in Lightroom. I understand that changing that all now would be awful for many existing users, but being able to override them like I can in Photoshop would be helpful. Doesn't anyone else out there find they use to wrong keyboard shortcuts in the wrong program?

I hate lightroom shorcuts I want to get rid of them . They mess my workflow when I am typing keywords metadata. Suddenly I jump to develope mode etc. One option DISABLE KEY SHORTCUTS that's it. Not that complicated he ?

Lightroom classic is giving lots of headache because of the keyword shortcuts. When I enter data in the metadata panel and write tags I hit often a key and it jumps me to another tab like the develop module etc. I want to just disable shortcuts.

While waiting for LR to provide easy keyboard customization (which we've been waiting for a long time, unfortunately), it is possible to assign, change, or disable most shortcuts by using the Keyboard Tamer plugin, changing the shortcuts in System Preferences on Mac, or by editing Translating Strings.txt on Windows and Mac.

Any shortcut customisation, including disabling shortcuts, would be welcome.

It would be really great if the user could define keyboard shortcuts!

Yes! Please make this happen!  And then let us print out a list of all shortcuts with an automatic date stamp!

Oh, and let us change these shortcuts according to user and/or language.

In fact you can change the shortcut today but it will be overwriten when you will update. Go to

 

C:\Program Files\Adobe\Adobe Lightroom Classic\Resources\fr (for french for exemple)

 

and look inside the text file TranslatedStrings_Lr_fr_FR.txt you will find things like

 

"$$$/AgApplication/Menu/Window/SecondMonitor/ZoomInShortcut=Cmd+Shift+="

 

You can then change the shortcut at your own risk

Thanks, Ouioui - I didn't know that I could do that but if they are shortcuts which can be overwritten so easily, they're no good for my purposes.  Merci!

The Keyboard Tamer plugin lets you define shortcuts and quickly restore them after an update to the application.

Nine and a half years and still no option for Windows users to make their own keyboard actions/shortcuts. Please, please PLEASE just do this already. Photoshop is 100x better already having this function.

Is there a way to set Custom Shortcuts in Lightroom Classic, for example the way VSCO Keys used to do it ?

It was a MASSIVE time saver, to be able to perform actions (like pressing a key to add +0.3 exposure), whether you were in Library or Develop module, etc.

Without this the software is a lot worse, a lot slower and way less fun to use than it was 5 years ago. You could even cull through images with a gaming controller !

You could try using a Loupedeck controller. It allows full customization and lots of programming capabilities!

Thanks for your reply ; yes I know it exists, but I would really prefer to not invest in a device just to do this. It was possible (and maybe still is) with some plugins in the past, and it's probably THE MOST requested feature ever in Lightroom Classic (and has been for what, 10 years now ?)... That absolutely should be integrated in LR. Alternative title could have been : "Come on Adobe, don't you want your customers to be happy" ?
