I bought a Intous 5 after all the rave reviews to work with LR & CC .. but was shocked to learn from Adobe help desk that LR does not support the change of brush size via keyboard shortcuts as Adobe does not properly support a french keyboard ? Can this be true .. if so there would need to be a serious notice needed on Adobe LR that product functionality is not provide in non US keyboards .. CC can change the shortcuts .. LR not I was told by the helpdesk and the used ones are simply working only on a US keyboard.

Stunnned without words , did not find this in any LR or Intous review .

I tested a couple of shortcuts yesterday in 5.4 and they worked as expected.

I've just had a quick look and I can't see it in the menu's, but I haven't had time to look properly.

I have just had a look in the TranslatedStrings.txt file mentioned in the article above and found the following lines:

"$$$/AgDevelop/Localized/BrushDecreaseKey=,"
"$$$/AgDevelop/Localized/BrushDecreaseKeyShifted=?"
"$$$/AgDevelop/Localized/BrushIncreaseKey=;"
"$$$/AgDevelop/Localized/BrushIncreaseKeyShifted=."

At a quick glance, that looks like the French version has different shortcuts already... give those , and ; a try and see?

yes "," and ";" works when I switch to LR in french language .. now I hope I can make them work in LR English following your article in creating a new "en" folder and use above strings ... thank you so much and such a shame that this is not covered by adobe properly .

The help desk senior expert (needed to chat 3 times until I was transferred to a specialist ) pretended that this is a completely new question .. and asked me to post it here for the developers ...while it is clearly visible after reading this forum that there are posts on this going back until 2011 :-(
