Command + E shortcut for Export

Recommended Posts

Hello,

InDesign has a simple keyboard shortcut for Export: Cmd + E.

I still don't understand why did you have to use what is probably the worst shortcut ever - Shift + Alt + Command + S.

Only Photoshop uses this shortcut I believe and only for the Save for Web command.

But Command + E would be just brilliant for Export, don't you think? And everybody would understand it. Everybody could even guess it right away. And - this shortcut isn't assigned to anything in Publisher right now! And it would be really good to have this same shortcut for Export in all of your programs - Publisher, Designer and Photo.

Please.

Thank you.

David

Assign shortcuts to your preferences.

This is what I wanted to write first, but he "complains" that this is not the default shortcut. I must admit, that pressing 4 keys at the same time causes me sometimes pain in my hand. ;)

If you export so often that you have to use a keyboard shortcut, then set it to any suitable value. I often do not export (only when the work is really done, or rather use Export person), so I do not use the shortcut at all - I use a click in the menu. And to occupy this exclusive shortcut (Ctrl + E) on such a little-used function by default, it seems to me unnecessary comfort, I prefer to leave it free for some frequently performed operations (Erase, Expand, Exposure, Merge, etc.)

I was going to post this question actually on Publisher feedback and accidentaly dropped it here, too.

I did not know about the shortcuts options in preferences - well, I did but didn't see the options for Export at first.

My bad - thank you for help, you've made my day!

As of now it seems perfect for me - having Cmd + E shortcut for Export as I do not need it for anything else. Howeve this might change in the future, depending on my needs.

Thanks!
