[LR 8.0 broke this again, and Adobe has reopened the bug. See All Replies.]

LR 7.4 broke the keyboard shortcut for Group Into Stack for German. For previous versions, it was assigned to Cmd/Ctrl+G. But in 7.4, Preferences is also assigned to Cmd+G (Preferences was previously assigned to Cmd+W).

The workaround (and Adobe's fix) is to change this line in TranslatedStrings_Lr_de_DE.txt:
"$$$/Application/Menu/Edit/Preferences/KeyWin=Cmd+g"
back to the original:

"$$$/Application/Menu/Edit/Preferences/KeyWin=Cmd+W"
(LR 7.4 makes no other assignments to Cmd+W.)  See this article for editing TranslatingStrings:

Yet again, no quality assurance for changes to keyboard shortcuts. At a minimum, before allowing a change to TranslatedStrings to be checked into the main branch, there should two people doing a "diff" and reviewing each edit.
