This conversation has been merged. Please reference the main conversation: Photoshop CC 2018: Shortcuts using Alt key aren't working correctly (e.g. Alt-Backspace)

I need to press Alt-Backspace two times in a row to get it to fill foreground color after updating to CC 2018 this morning. Is there a setting change I need to make or is this a bug? Thanks for a quick reply. This is a big part of my job as a comic book colorist and driving me nuts today.

Hi Jeremy,

This is a known issue in CC 2018. It was an unfortunately an unforeseen consequence of another fix.  We're aware of the issue and are working on a fix.

In the meanwhile, as a workaround until we can roll out the fix, you can *either* customize the shortcut by removing the ALT key (the keyboard shortcut dialog is accessible via Edit > Keyboard Shortcuts or CTRL+SHIFT+ALT+K) *or* you can just make sure that ALT is pressed after CTRL.
