Lightroom: German keyboard shortcut for Group Into Stack broken

[LR 8.0 broke this again, and Adobe has reopened the bug. See All Replies.]

LR 7.4 broke the keyboard shortcut for Group Into Stack for German. For previous versions, it was assigned to Cmd/Ctrl+G. But in 7.4, Preferences is also assigned to Cmd+G (Preferences was previously assigned to Cmd+W).

The workaround (and Adobe's fix) is to change this line in TranslatedStrings_Lr_de_DE.txt:
"$$$/Application/Menu/Edit/Preferences/KeyWin=Cmd+g"
back to the original:

"$$$/Application/Menu/Edit/Preferences/KeyWin=Cmd+W"
(LR 7.4 makes no other assignments to Cmd+W.)  See this article for editing TranslatingStrings:

https://www.lightroomqueen.com/custom-keyboard-shortcuts/


Yet again, no quality assurance for changes to keyboard shortcuts. At a minimum, before allowing a change to TranslatedStrings to be checked into the main branch, there should two people doing a "diff" and reviewing each edit.

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Shortcut CTRL-G for stacking pictures doesn't work in German version.

Shortcut Ctrl - G for stacking pictures doesn't work in the German version of Lightroom Classic CC (version 7.4).
If pressing CTRL-G it opens the Preferences dialogue.

Lightroom Classic CC 7.5 was released today and should address this issue.  If you don’t see the update in your Creative Cloud App, hit the [Ctrl/Cmd]+ [Alt/Opt]+[R] to force a refresh. 

Give the new version a try and let us know if it solves the issue.

I've installed the update to version 7.5. The shortcut ctrl + G is working now. I thin the issue was solved.

After installing the update to Lightroom 8 the problem is back again.

The workaround to fix is the same as wrote above.



Changing this line in TranslatedStrings_Lr_de_DE.txt:

"$$$/Application/Menu/Edit/Preferences/KeyWin=Cmd+g"

back to the original:

"$$$/Application/Menu/Edit/Preferences/KeyWin=Cmd+W"

Unfortunately, you'll have to apply the workaround described in the first post.

After installing Lightroom Classic CC (8.2) the issue seems to be fixed. I've tested the shortcut CTRL + G and it worked fine.

...and I checked the TranslatedStrings file, and it looks correct.  I'll mark this as Solved.
