useful keyboard shortcuts

Recommended Posts

I may be coming 'late to the party', but I've found a couple  things that have speeded up my workflow which I want to share.

Sometimes  I want to edit an object but I don't know what layer it is on. Thanks to Serif, I click on the object and then use Ctrl/Cmd  +  K and the layer becomes selected.

Thanks to Carl Surry,  I now can use Alt/Option + X to get Black and White.  I  took his other advice to customize my own shortcuts--although  because my hands find Shift easier than Alt/Opt, I used Shift for a modifier key.  Now I can create new a new layer or a new mask layer, or get to my most-used Live Filters directly from the keyboard.
