This conversation has been merged. Please reference the main conversation: Lightroom Classic 9.1: Keyboard shortcuts for German broken

There's a ton of different Articles relating to Keyboard Shortcuts, is that so difficult to get Fixed ?
On my Germany Keyboard lots of the Shortcuts are totaly Different to what the helpfile says, and some i cannot figure out at all.
Shortcuts for speedy developing in the main developing-tools-window   #/- ( indrease/decrease) are only accesible via + (scrooling through the tools) in one Direction ( downwards)? is there no Shortcut to go the other direction (upwards) as well ?  so if i want to togle betwen contrast and brightness, i allways have to go through ALL the tools till i get there again??

For some reason, LR doesn't define a shortcut for moving the focus to the previous slider in the Basic panel when running in German. However, you can define that shortcut yourself by editing the TranslatedStrings file:

In particular, change this line:


In general, LR's support for keyboard shortcuts is not good, and its documentation incomplete and often incorrect, especially for languages other than English. As you point out, the German Help list of keyboard shortcuts for Develop is completely wrong:

In English, the Lightroom Queen maintains the most authoritative reference:

But I don't know of any similar resource for other languages. The TranslatedStrings files list nearly all the shortcuts for each language, but believe it or not, some shortcuts are hardwired into LR.

Thank you John, this is very helpfull indeed. Also it leaves me quite bewilderred that a Company like Adobe is capable of such ..... ( i leave it unspoken )

I will have a look into  Lightroomqueens manual and see if i can fix this.  While thinking about whats happening with my monthly subscription fee....and why i have to do things like that....
