LIGHTROOM - keyboard shortcut for increase/decrease brush size/feather: non-english keyboard?

Hi,
I want to map the wheel of my Wacom Intuos Pro to increase and decrease the size of the brush and the feather of the brush. Sort of what it's made for.

But I can't find the shortcuts.
These [ ] etc just don't seem to work because ... Lightroom doesn't accept my keyboard layout? (Oh, decreasing the brush size does work. All the rest doesn't)

Anyone knows the shortcuts?

Thanks

On a German keyboard, use "," and ".". For other languages, see this article for how to find the appropriate TranslatedStrings.txt file: http://www.lightroomqueen.com/article.... In that file, search for these lines:

"$$$/AgDevelop/Localized/BrushDecreaseKey=,"
"$$$/AgDevelop/Localized/BrushDecreaseKeyShifted=;"
"$$$/AgDevelop/Localized/BrushIncreaseKey=."
"$$$/AgDevelop/Localized/BrushIncreaseKeyShifted=:"

Thanks.
That gave me a good lead to finding the solution.
A lot of trial and error finally gave me working shortcuts for my brush and spot healing.

These work on a Belgian azerty-keyboard:

"$$$/AgDevelop/Localized/BrushDecreaseKey=,"
"$$$/AgDevelop/Localized/BrushDecreaseKeyShifted=?"
"$$$/AgDevelop/Localized/BrushIncreaseKey=;"
"$$$/AgDevelop/Localized/BrushIncreaseKeyShifted=."
"$$$/AgDevelop/Localized/SpotDecreaseKey=%"
"$$$/AgDevelop/Localized/SpotDecreaseKeyShifted=;"
"$$$/AgDevelop/Localized/SpotIncreaseKey=:"
"$$$/AgDevelop/Localized/SpotIncreaseKeyShifted=,"

Great, glad you got the problem solved. If only LR had an easier way to customize keyboard shortcuts...
