Photoshop needs a way to remove alt shortcuts. Particularly alt + [  and alt + ] (layer cycle)

I'd like it if they'd expose ALL kbsc to the Keyboard Shortcuts Editor AND adopted the Premiere Pro way of displaying kbsc as well as have a Search function. As it is, editing KBSC is about as discouraging as it gets while still offering us the option to "customize" —some of it. (sigh)

Personally I don’t consider the the specific keys mentioned in the request much of an issue but making all keyboard shortcuts editable (including those pertaining to dialogs and Panels) might  be useful. 
It might also prove a bit of a horror when having to work on someone else’s computer, but still ...  

A Feature Request on a Search-field in the Keyboard Shortcut dialog exists by the way:

Howdy Brandon,

Why would removing the ALT shortcuts be useful or helpful to you?  Share your story, so we understand your workflow.

As for exposing ALL shortcuts, I too am a fan.  User stories detailing the VALUE of such work can help get it prioritized higher...  Please share.

Thanks,
David

I am not the original poster but for me it’s the problem of combining a non-english keyboard with the English version of Photoshop which makes certain keyboard shortcuts impossible to use.

I have a Wacom Intuos 3 tablet with hardware keys and I set one to Option and the two next to it to [ and ]. This lets me change sampling point and change brush sizes easily. But the design makes it easy to fat-finger option-bracket and change layers, especially since I'm not looking at the tablet. Its REALLY annoying since I can't change or eliminate those shortcuts which I don't need, want, or ever use.
