Why has the keyboard shortcut of the file menu been changed in the German version from alt+D to alt+T ?? This is Major Showstopper for me!

Pretty please with sugar on top, fix it back.

Kind regards, mt.

Is that one of those you can’t change yourself under Edit > Keyboard Shortcuts?

Yeah, exactly, its the application menu shortcut itself...

In PS, no shortcut is allowed to start with alt alone, its a windows directive to open the menubar of the application.
[sorry, forgot to mention that i'm using PS on Windows]

In Windows, every Program I can think of, has the shortcut alt+D for the File menu [D_atei in german], in english alt+F [F_ile] in english, respectively.

PS CS5 is the first Program I know of which breaks this standard with alt+T, even highlighted in the menu [Da_t_ei ]

Drives me crazy.
