Lightroom Classic: lightroom shortcuts not working

Since I upgraded to Lightroom Classic, my workflow is blocked. When I'm editing a photo, I used to switch between brightness, contrast, Color, etc with , while I adapt with - or #. But since the update increasing with # is not working anymore. Everything else works. Same for brushes in photoshop. I can make them smaller with - but can't make them bigger anymore. Only with the mouse which takes too much time.

Can someone help me please? Is this a problem with Adobe or with my laptop? I'm using an ASUS K95V with Windows 8.1.

Thank you!

Thank you, but I tried that already. As i said, make something less with - is working. But I can't make anything bigger. neither with + nor # or anything else.

You didn't say you tried the + key, you only mentioned the # key. The + key works fine on my Mac, so maybe this is a Windows thing.

You could try the following workaround. Don't click on the slider name, click in the number field on the right if the slider. Now you can use the up and down arrow keys.

Yes, but then I have to click in the number field every time. I edit wedding photos, hundreds at the same time, and this really takes too much time to click in it for every photo. Before the update it was no Problem. I could go to the next photo with the right arrow and adjust everything. Can I change the Settings for the shortcuts somehow?

You might try resetting Lightroom preferences. Hold down Shift + Alt (Windows) or Shift + Opt (Mac) when starting LR, and choose "reset preferences."

I believe this may be a localization issue. Apparently, some shortcuts are/were different on a French keyboard, and that may be broken in Lr Classic.

LR 7.1 broke this keyboard shortcut for some languages.  In which language are you running LR?  (Adobe has introduced a number of keyboard shortcut bugs in the last few versions -- they don't appear to be testing keyboard shortcuts thoroughly, or at all.)

The only known workaround is to roll back to 7.0.1.
