Hey Affinity let me put it like this:
Your only path forward here is to listen to your users and turn them into evangelists who will convince their coworkers and colleagues to switch from Photoshop. Take a look at when this thread was created and ask yourself if you think you're doing a good job on this front?
Adobe is driving long time users away because they're making irresponsible UX changes that are ruining workflows that we've used forever. The most recent version actually ruined the workflow that this thread is asking you to support. It creates a weird delay after you press Ctrl which slows things down. If you want to capture this large, increasingly frustrated user-base from Photoshop. Now is the time.
