Last filter with dialog doesnt work anymore in PS CC2017 (old shortcut Alt+ctrl+f)

In Photoshop earlier than 2017, it was possible to get the last used filter with its dialog by pressing Alt+Ctrl+F, but now the less useful Last Filter command (with last used settings and don't show the dialog) is using this shortcut. That is caused by the nice and very useful global app search command taking the Ctrl+F shortcut.

looking though the Keyboard Shortcut dialog and the "Last Filter With Dialog"  is nowhere to be found. Even looking through an older version of PS that command is not there, and exporting a shortcut list via the "summarize" command in the keyborad Shortcuts dialog in an older PS the Alt+Ctrl+F shortcut is not listed, even when it works.
So is this "Last Filter With Dialog"  command just some old relic command in PS that never have been hooked up to the shortcut editor, and now we have lost it in PS?

Please say i'm missing something obvious, or that this is just an oversight from the PS team and it will be brought back. At least make it a command in the shortcut editor so i can overwrite the "Last Filter" command with "Last Filter With Dialog", its much more useful, at least for me :-)

apparently it can be done. when I updated to 2017 my previous keyboard shortcuts where moved over which contain Ctrl-F for last filter. If you click where it says alt-ctrl-f and hit ctrl-f photoshop will warn you it's overwriting the default and save it as a modified shortcuts and keep it.

Hi John
Yes i see the "Last Filter" command, but not the "Last Filter with Dialog" that used to be on the shortcut Alt+Ctrl+F.
I can sort of get the old behavior back by using Ctrl+F to search, type the filter i used last (eg. Offset), select the second listed Offset filter in the search result (since the first listed item is the Last Filter command for that filter).
But this is many more steps than the simpel shortcut that used to work just one version back.

Those of us who had saved custom keyboard shortcuts didn't have anything change. So how about you try going the other route—create a new custom kbsc for Search. Replace the Cmd/Ctrl-F with something else you think you'll remember. Then assign Cmd/Ctrl-F to Last Filter. Save your set, and see if that doesn't bring back the old behavior for you.
