I would really appreciate the ability to bind keys freely.

Seeing how far Photoshop has come I see no reason to keep the limitations in place, such as "This keybind must have CTRL +" when it comes to some of them.

I see programs such as Krita having the ability to bind any key to any tool or menu setting and I have tried for over a year to learn Photoshop, but the keybinds make it hard on me because I can never get used to them.

I would like the ability to bind just "M" to Flip Canvas, this cant be done in Photoshop. Or the SHIFT + drag to change brush size, cant be done in Photoshop unless bind your pen to an additional key and then press SHIFT + drag. In Krita, you can do this by just holding Shift and dragging without pressing any button on the pen itself. This is very convinient!

I love Photoshop, but its keybind limitations make me unsubscribe and go back to Krita all the time. I would love if Photoshop could just make that simple change and allow users to bind things freely. I see no problem in doing this, older users can still keep default bindings.

Photoshop has existed for so many years that I feel its time to free up the program for its users without limitations.
