No keyboard showing on screen unless text selected. iPad


Recommended Posts

The Command controller can’t be used unless the onscreen keyboard becomes active, and it doesn’t if only an image is onscreen. iPad 

If I select Text (Artistic or Frame) it’s fine, but if only an image is selected and I want to Invert an adjustment with Command+I I can’t. There’s no keypad showing. Photo. 5.2

I would phrase that a bit differently, I think. The Command Controller can be used, but clearly it can't be used with keyboard input unless you have a physical or on-screen keyboard available. 

And I can't tell you how to get the on-screen keyboard if you don't have one of the text tools active. Sorry.

Why would you want to jump through hoops to use the Command Controller, given that you can go to the Adjustments Studio and choose the ‘Invert’ adjustment there? :/

For a start, if I have a curves adjustment layer on an image, and try to invert that layer on the iPad, it just turns the whole image into a negative image. On the desktop, Option+I inverts the adjustment layer, not the whole image. 
so I was looking for the same action.

Because the Invert Adjustment on iPad doesn't behave the same way as the desktop version. In that you can't Invert an existing Adjustment layer.

The Invert Adjustment works the same way on both, but the Invert Adjustment is not the same as the desktop's Layer > Invert which is a completely different function.
