Photoshop/ACR: 100% zoom shortcut consistency in camera raw and liquify etc.

I know this is an old one, but it still drives me nuts because I still forget which is which.

Photoshop added the shortcut command/control 1 to zoom in to 100% to be consistent with other Adobe products, but retained the old shortcut of cmd+opt/ctrl+alt 0 - so far so good. I like having both.

My problem is that it's not consistent throughout the PS workflow: specifically, ACR recognizes cmd+opt/ctrl+alt 0, but not cmd/ctrl 1; and Liquify, Adaptive Wide Angle and Lens Correction recognize cmd/ctrl 1, but not cmd+opt/ctrl+alt 0.

This would be welcome JDI for those of us who rely largely on keyboard navigation.

Here's an explanation of why it's different: http://feedback.photoshop.com/photosh...

Jeffrey, thanks but what about AWA and Lens Correction?

And Liquify. Vanishing Point, Oil Paint, even Filter Gallery all allow either shortcut.

It would be helpful to have one that ALWAYS works. Anyone using Photoshop long enough already knows Cmd+opt 0, but even that old standard is inexplicably unwelcome in several modules introduced since The Great Channel Shortcut Migration.

Yes, some of the other shortcuts like the alt+scrollwhel do not work in the Mondo plug-ins (Liquify & co)

I'm not poo-pooing the idea/change, just providing so historical context. :)

I think the thinking was that everyone was going to move to the new shortcut, and the old one was just left in there for luddites and old dogs.

Personally, I've come to enjoy having both, depending on where my left hand is hovering at the time. Most important of all, though, is the UI consistency. I like to be able to work faster than I think.

And Jeffrey, I like your historical context, here and elsewhere in the forum. Don't think I'm poo-pooing your response.

Thanks. Sometimes I add comments for my own reference (and other eng on the team) - and forget how others will interpret the comment.
