I don't use Illustrator very often but I'd like to set up some custom shortcuts to make my day easier.
I have an Italian keyboard so some of the default shortcuts need to be changed.
For example, I'd like to Show and Hide the grid by using a shortcut. And I'd like it tobe Ctrl + '.
This because it would be the same shourtcut I use in After Effects.
When I open the Keyboard Shortcuts window and change the default shortcut to Ctrl + ' everything seems to work fine. However, the shorcut doesn't work at all. Nothing. This problem drives me crazy, I even thought to buy a keyboard with a US layout but then it would be painful to write words with accents.
And your system language and the keyboard language is Italian and the Illustrator language as well? So everything is the same?
Mmmh no, system language is English, Illustrator language English, keyboard Italian. Do you think is a problem?
So not only is the keyboard Italian, but also the assigned language? That can indeed be a problem with these special keys.
Of course. What's the purpose of having an Italian keyboard and set it to English? Eveything would be in the wrong place.
It's just Illustrator that can't get his head around this. Any other softwares just work fine.
