I'm missing an function from previous PS-version: Increasind and decreasing the selected text by keyboard-shortcut, like its (still) possible in inDesing and Illustrator. In CS5 I used »shift-command-,« or »shift-command-.« to change the fontsize. Now this won't work in PS anymore, while its still there in ID and AI... WHY? Please give me a solution. Its not cool to work like that!!! :(

Selected text still changes size with command-shift-command or period in Photoshop CC.

Is there something else on your system also using those shortcuts?

Hey. Thanks for your reply. Its CS6 that i am using ... do I have to upgrade to CC to have that feature back in my hands? :)

I dont think that the system interferes because it changed right after I upgraded from CS5 to CS6... so I'm pretty sure its not the system. Also I have the same "problem" at work AND at home on two differant systems (mac pro/ mac book pro).

cheers.

I just checked, and the shortcuts are also working in Photoshop CS6 (13.1.2).

The German part might be important. I don't see any way to customize those shortcuts as a user, but the localization team may have changed them to be friendlier on German keyboards. Hmm, but I'm not seeing that in the localized strings, either.

Without the Creative Cloud subscription, the only way to change the language is to purchase a version in the desired language.
