Photoshop: Use brush as an eraser (german)

The function to use the chosen brush as an eraser doesn't work in the german Version, even though it is mentioned in the official list of shortcuts.

Hallo!
Okay, this appears to be a problem in English too.  I've gone ahead and logged a bug. 

Thanks for letting us know,David

Hello Sacha,

My mistake.  This functionality was added for 21.0 and does appear to be working in English and German on both platforms.  You need to make sure you're not working on the background layer, as erasing there leads to non-transparent results.
Thanks,
David

Hello David, please log a bug again, I am working with 21.1.2, German Version. This functionality won't work with the Gravis - Key (`), tested it again on another Layer with different Brushes.

Thanks
Sascha

Hey Sascha,
That's very strange, because I tried it this morning.  Are you on Windows or Mac?  Which OS version?  You're using a German keyboard layout as well as a physical German keyboard?  And the ` that you're pressing is below ESC and to the left of the number 1?

Would you be available for a web-hosted screenshare?  There's something more here, I think.
Thanks,
David

Hey David, 

I'm working on Windows 10, V.1909.

The Keyboard is German Layout, German physical device. 

I've tried both, the key below esc, left of the number 1 (on german Layout, this is not the gravis, it is the Accent circonflexe (^)) and the Accent Grave (on german Layout on the left of the backspace, together with shift. (`)

I'm available for a screenshare, just need to make out the Time.

Thanks
Sascha

hi, try to use the ">" key on your German keyboard. I think it should be working. Maybe the documentation needs an update.

It jumps to erase, but dont hold the used brush this way. It uses a round soft brush then, unfortunatly.

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled italian keyboard problem with brush paint delete and grave accent key.

I am following many tutorials regarding the latest version of Photoshop 2020. In this version there is the possibility of using the brush and erasing alternately with the tilde key. However, Tilde does not exist on the Italian keyboard, nor does that of the grave accent that you have indicated as an alternative exist. I therefore ask technical support to indicate a valid key for the Italian keyboard or to find an appropriate solution.

Unfortunately, it would appear that this is an issue in Italian too.

Not sure if this will help but it does for me on Windows 10 you need to use "US keyboard" in your preferred language not "United States-International" keyboard I hope this helps
