Howdy Antharil,

When you say that the Flow shortcut doesn't work, what happens? Also, does the Opacity shortcut work?

Thanks,
David

Whoops! I'm so sorry!

So when you have the Brush tool active and press 5 and 5, the Opacity of your brush correctly changes to 55% but when you press SHIFT+5 twice, nothing happens, correct?

What language of Photoshop are you running? What language is your Operating System? How about your keyboard? Are you using any additional applications or devices to customize shortcuts or keystrokes?

Thanks,
David

yup, that's correct.

My CC softwares are in english but my OS is in french.
The keyboard is in azerty and I'm not using any applications to modify its behavior :)

That's the problem. Your French AZERTY keyboard only allows numbers WITH SHIFT, so you're using the keypad numbers for this functionality, right? The SHIFT+number shortcut for Flow doesn't work for the keypad. As I recall, there's a technical limitation which impacts therefore all AZERTY keyboards, but I'll double-check and log a bug just in case. I did just verify that this limitation is not an issue for the Swiss French or Canadian French keyboards, but they're both QWERTZ/Y.

Sorry!

hah! Ok I got it....
Indeed, I'm using the keypad. :(
Not cool for all the azerty users.

Anyway, Thank you for the support!

Pas de problème et vous avez raison à mon avis. En fait, je viens d'enregistrer un bug sur cette problème... On verra...

Bonne journée!

I was questioning myself for the same problem. 
Is there any fixes now to allow the shift with the keypad?

THanks a lot
