Has anyone else noticed the shortcut-key for rasterizing a layer is "cmd-return" on the Mac. Old habits are hard to break, and this is an old Photoshop habit of mine to exit out of text areas, but in Publisher it will rasterize my text area into multiple layers. I could not find a way to change this. Any tips?

Thanks

Doesn't rasterize it Converts to Curves. You can remove that in Preferences... > Keyboard Shortcuts > Layer > Convert to Curves. I don't know of any key combination which will let me get the caret out of text. I would love one, currently my text gets filled with lots of 'v's or 'm's or 'p's or returns.

Replying to my own query, I can use Command + D for deselect to get out of the Text Frame or Artistic Text. Maybe @hikerbikerwriter could remap the command + return.

Hi @Old Bruce,

try the ESC-key. It makes the current text box active but stays with the text tool selected. This gives you the option to draw another text box.

I have trained myself (and got used to it) to hit ESC and then V. This (sort of) quickly switches to the Move Tool. (I see already fellow forumsters posting 'but this is two keystrokes ... this is just too much typing' ;) )

d. + another ;) smiley to make sure that I am not seriously complaining about other forumsters feature requests. We're here to collect request :)
