I cannot tell you how many times I have accidently dragged a finger on my keyboard and suddenly, I’m in an alternate universe. Yes I am talking about the myriad keyboard shortcuts in all Adobe products. One misplaced stroke on the keyboard, and your screen may change dramatically as you have inadvertanly pressed an unknown key and have to try to figure out how to get back to wherever you were. I would be amazed if there was even one person in the world that has all the keyboard shortcuts in every module of LR memorized. So here’s my suggestion and I have to believe it would be easily implemented by your brilliant software engineers (I mean that, they really are).

How about a preferences tab with a page for each module that would allow one to turn off, or turn on the keyboard shortcuts. It could be a simple checkbox for “All On” or “All Off” with “All On” being the default. But it would allow one to check on just the ones needed. That way, a person could start with some basics turned on, and then add more as they become more proficient. You know, the old “baby steps” theory.

I really hope you take my suggestion to heart and implement it. It would make LR an even more fabulous piece of software.
