How do I assign a new keyboard shortcut?


Recommended Posts

I use the Magic Wand tool a LOT. But pressing S *four times* is just ridiculous. (Pressing any key combo more than twice is not really a shortcut, arguably.)

 

I'd like to assign an unused key to go straight to the Magic Wand. How do I do this?

The trouble is, using the mouse involves a change of input modality. That means, moving a hand from the keyboard to the mouse (or vice versa).

 

That's why I'm asking.

 

Surely someone must have written a plugin?  (Fingers crossed.)

Plugins cannot add or modify the keyboard shortcuts.

The small increase in performance you get coding in C++ over C# is hardly enough to offset the headache of coding in the C++ language. ~BoltBait

^ He'll have already read this.

 

The likely answer will be to recommend you install a third party app to record yourself a keyboard macro.

For magic wand tool press Shift+S


Almost everything has a shortcut in this program, just got to find them haha.

 

I don't think that's intentional, but may as well keep it :)

Looks like Shift+M also works for activating the Move Selection tool

 

Still not sure how/why this is happening, but my guess is that Shift activates the _last_ tool with that shortcut key

I'm not a shortcut key kind of gal :) But now I know, I may use it 👍
