Lightroom Classic: Shortcut missing when multiple photos selected

Because the menu option "Convert Photo to DNG..." does not have a shortcut in Adobe Lightroom Classic CC, I added one using "System Preferences -> Keyboard -> App Shortcuts" for Ctrl-F2 on my Mac 10.11.6.

The shortcut appears in Lightroom when I select a single photo but when I select more than one photo the shortcut disappears. However, I can select multiple photos and select the menu option and it works. Somehow, the keyboard shortcut is only recognized when one photo is selected.

I think this is a bug in Lightroom but I'd be happy to be shown that I've made a mistake somehow.

The problem is that the menu command name changes when more than photo is selected:

Convert Photo to DNG...
Convert Photos to DNG...

I just added keyboard shortcuts for both of these, each assigned Ctrl+F2, and the shortcut then works as desired.

Awesome. I don't know why I didn't think of that. Now that you say it, it seems obvious. I'm happy to have my mistake identified and corrected. It now works as it should.

Thanks for the correction.

Of course, this would all be a lot easier if LR itself had the ability to assign keyboard shortcuts.
