Lightroom: Shift + X no longer does Reject And Next (German)

  • Updated 2 years ago
In CC 2015.8 (OS X 10.11.5) in German, the shorcut Shift + X no longer does Reject And Next in Library.  In Develop, Shift + X does do Reject And Next.

You can work around this problem by editing the file "TranslatedStrings_Lr_de_DE.txt" and changing this line:
"$$$/AgLibrary/Menu/View/GridViewStyle/ShowExtras/Key=Strg+Umschalt+X"
to:
"$$$/AgLibrary/Menu/View/GridViewStyle/ShowExtras/Key=Cmd+Shift+X"

See this article for how to edit TranslatedStrings.  That article mentions TranslatedStrings.txt (used in earlier versions), but now you'll have to edit TranslatedStrings_Lr_de_DE.txt.

There is a similar problem with the shortcut X for Reject in French (whereas Reject and Next worked in French).

A similar issue was introduced in 2015.7 for Swedish, and 2015.8  for French, and the workaround was similar:

Two observations for Adobe:

- Changes to TranslatedStrings.txt should be tested before release (e.g. the change in German from "Cmd+Shift+h" to "Strg+Umschalt+X").

- The mechanism for TranslatedStrings gets confused when localized key modifiers are used (Strg, Umschalt, Kommando, Skift, Maj) instead of their English equivalents (Cmd, Shift).

Thank's John,
For French
Change
"$$$/AgLibrary/Menu/View/GridViewStyle/ShowExtras/Key=Ctrl+Maj+x"

to :
"$$$/AgLibrary/Menu/View/GridViewStyle/ShowExtras/Key=Cmd+Shift+X"

This is the solution !

This appears to be fixed in CC 2015.9 / 6.9.  The release notes say only that it was fixed for French, but examining the TranslatedStrings.txt file, it looks like it was fixed for German too.   Please post here if 2015.9 / 6.9 doesn't fix the issue.
