Lightroom mobile: Keyboard shortcuts on the iPad (w/ keyboard attached)

Feature request for Lightroom mobile

Use case: Making picks and rating photos -- while using an iPad
It would be great if the keyboard shortcuts I already use at my Mac would also work on the iPad. I frequently use a keyboard for my iPad (I think a lot of other iPad ninjas do too) and if I could use keyboard shortcuts to make my ratings and picks, things would really fly!

Yes please - exactly what I'm looking for. Just adding "left / right / X / P / numeric ratings" to navigate and edit down to keepers would be a big help.

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled iOS Lightroom Mobile Keyboard Shortcuts.

Not sure if they are present on iPad, but I occasionally use iPhone for flagging photos in Lightroom mobile on my iPhone 6s with a Bluetooth keyboard. I'm sad to find that there aren't keyboard shortcuts (P, U, X, 1-5, 6-9) for flagging and marking photos. This seems like it would be a fairly easy thing to execute and wouldn't do any harm to have even if not a lot of people would use it. I def would!

Likewise, when using a keyboard cover with an iPad it’s a shame that the only high-level shortcut available in Lightroom is I (Cycle Info Overlay) when the following should be available:
- P for People tab
- A for All Photos
- R for Recently Added
- S or Command + F to focus the search input field, delete to clear existing search terms one by one if the input field is empty
- Arrow Keys (Up, Down, Left, Right) to navigate through individual images in Grid mode just as it currently works in individual image mode
- 1,2,3,4,5,P,U,X for flag individual images or multi-image selections in Grid mode

I’m sure a lot more shortcuts could be added. With the upcoming iPadOS this should probably be a great addition to make Lightroom a lot more capable for iPad and iPad Pro users.

This 5 year old topic pretty much covers it but unfortunately we’re still waiting for full keyboard support.  I’d just like a key to zoom 1:1 and back out again, that would certainly speed things up instead of having to double tap the screen multiple times.

Looks like it’s working! I haven’t tested all the shortcuts fully, but X does reject and P sets it to picked. Very exciting. Let me know if anyone finds more shortcuts.
