amazing work, I just made the update and now my selection tool shortcut doesn't work
KEEP UP THE AMAZING WORK GUYS!
Yes, I checked the shortcuts, I also removed the key,saved and reasign it. I noticed it happens after I use the shortcut for Pan behind. In new project the selection shortcut works up until you use pan behind, in older projects it just doesn't work. I restarted After effects, then the pc, opened projects new and old and then just downgraded to the version I had 1 hour ago wich of course solved it. I'm on a PC, windows 10
I have the same problem in this version 18.1. (sorry for my english and the edited image, I'm using a translator) After the update I can't use the shortcut (V), it works only on specific panels of the interface. I restarted the PC and reinstalled After Effects but it didn't work. This is disastrous for a fast workflow.
Can you open your Keyboard Shortcuts window (Edit > Keyboard Shortcuts) and check if multiple shortcuts are assigned to the "V" key under the None modifier?
If there are multiple entries, a potential fix might be removing any commands other than "Selection".
Let us know if that helps.
I had made this check in the After Effects shortcuts at the beginning of the problem. I believe it is a problem on my Windows 10 operating system, but if other users report the same thing, I believe it could be more serious. Grateful for the help 🙂
It's not your system, I'm on a Mac and am experincing the same thing. Adobe and their quality updates strike again.
I'm discussing this with the After Effects team and they are investigating the issue. Are you using custom keyboard shortcuts?
Meanwhile, can you try these steps?
Also, can you share the keyboard shortcuts file from the OLD_18.1 > aeks folder with me?
Solved! I did these steps and everything is working normally. Now I will disable the function to import settings from previous versions. Thank you so much for your help haha :D!
Attached is a link requested from the OLD_18.1 folder Link OLD_18.1 afterEffects
I don't have this file path on a Mac.
Could you tell me the file to rename and the path to access it on a Mac please.
Try these steps instead:
When in Finder, click Go > Go to Folder and type the following command:
It should take you to that folder.
Sorry for this. A workaround for this issue involving resetting your Keyboard Shortcuts is found here: https://community.adobe.com/t5/after-effects/selection-tool-shortcut-v-stopped-working-with-the-18-1...
Yea, I'm on PC not Mac(as mentioned initially), I don't have "GizmoModeTogle"
Since this is a workflow problem(not beeing able to use shorcuts to switch between tools) I hardlly consider "reset your preferences" a solution, or correct answer in this case. And yea, I have custom shortcuts and I'm not in a rush to redo all of them. One may think that's the reason the "Miggrate preferences" exists
