Hi,
In ACR 12.3.0.493 the Targeted Adjustment Tool is now found in both the Curve and Color Mixer Panel.  In both locations the Tool Tip indicates (T) as the keyboard shortcut.  No matter where I am in ACR if I use the keyboard shortcut (T) it takes me to the Targeted Adjustment Tool in the Curve Panel.  I would expect to be allowed to remain in the Color Mixer Panel if I was already there.  Also, it might be nice to be able to SHIFT-T to cycle between the Targeted Adjustment Tools uses similar to Photoshop.
Thanks,
Doug Reilly

I don't use ACR, but Lightroom has separate short cuts to each targeted adjustment tool. They might work in ACR?  Short cuts are explained starting at 2:50 in this video https://youtu.be/yyeWx3nYpzA

Hi Jim,

Thanks for the tip.  I checked and the short cuts do work ask explained in Anthony's video.  It appears that (T) cycles the Targeted Adjustment Tool on and off and if no Targeted Adjustment Tool has already been selected - as when ACR has just been started - it defaults to the Curve Panel.  If a Targeted Adjustment Tool has been used it will cycle that one.

To summarize, the shortcuts Shift-Ctrl-Alt-T or Shift-Cmd-Opt-T will select the Targeted Adjustment Tool in the Curve Panel and the S-C-A-L will select the Targeted Adjustment Tool for Luminosity in the Color Mixer Panel.  S-C-A-H will select Hue and S-C-A-S will select Saturation just as in Lightroom.

The Tool Tip is a little confusing to me but this is a very handy tip.
