When using LrC, after hopping between develop mode and grid view a few times, ctrl+shift+s stops opening the sync develop settings dialog for me, and instead opens a "save as" dialog.
LrC doesn't even have a "save as" option? This is what confuses me the most!
The only way to make this stop is restart the program.
Support tells me this is due to conflicting commands and I should reset preferences and/or uninstall + reinstall.
Has anyone else had this issue happen? How did you solve it?
That keyboard shortcut is for Photoshop. There is no "save as" command as such in Lightroom Classic. The only way to "save" an image in LrC is to export a copy. You must be trying to use that command in Photoshop, and not Lightroom.
I appreciate you taking the time to read my post and reply, but unfortunately your reply does not help me in any way, as I stated in my explanation that LrC does not have a "save as" option. My issue is not confusion about which program I have open, evidenced by my detailed post about LrC. My issue is with the very specific error about a keyboard shortcut malfunctioning in LrC by opening a dialogue that doesn't even apply to the program -- an issue that I have already reached out to LrC support about. If you have any thoughts about the actual issue at hand, which has nothing to do with Photoshop, I would love to hear them.
The keyboard shortcut for "save as" cannot malfunction in Lightroom because it doesn't exist. It isn't there. The only way it is possible to "save" an image from Lightroom is to export a copy. Again, the keyboard shortcut you are looking for isn't there in Lightroom.
Doesn't the title of the dialog give you a clue? Like you said, Lightroom doesn't have a 'Save as' command, but it does have an 'Export' command for exporting presets, for example.
I can not duplicate that. Ctrl + Shift + s does absolutely nothing in LrC.
So what you are experiencing is more than likely LrC has Lost Focus and that key combo is opening the Save As dialog windows for whatever program the focus has shifted to.
Let me add that key combo only does something with multiple images selected.
Yes. I only use the keyboard shortcut for sync settings between images when I have more than one image selected.
That is a valid shortcut in Photoshop. The only thing I can think of is that this user is associating the shortcut with the wrong program.
Jim, again, I am completely aware of which programs I have open and which one I am using.
I would not have posted in the LrC forum if I was having problems with Photoshop.
Yeah, I finally realized what was going on. You probably have missed one of my comments. Since that key combination isn't bringing up the appropriate command You probably missed the suggestion in one of my answers that perhaps you should consider resetting the preferences. That keystroke combination does work properly on my computer. I don't use keyboard shortcuts normally so I wasn't aware of that command. Sorry for the confusion.
The OP knows that their is no save as in LrC. The OP stated that in fact. Issue for the OP is keyboard shortcut for Sync Settings (in Develop Module) is presenting the wrong dialog. A Save as Dialog.
Now, some possibilities
1. Accidentally not in LrC, perhaps this is a Windows OS save as, or a MS Word save as?
2. A corrupt preference file
3. Gremlins bribed with Tequila instead of Bourbon.
Finally. A helpful answer. Thank you!!!
Again though, I am aware of which program I am in while using this keyboard shortcut.
I've attached a screenshot of what appears during this error. This is indeed a save as popup dialog inside of LrC. I am not making this up, I am not stupid, I am not oblivious.
That dialog window is From Lr (Lightroom the Cloud Based version) and not from LrC as far as I can tell. The icon in the upper left hand corner has square carners, only has the letters L and r (Lr) and does not say Save As like any other Save As dialog box.
Is it a bug? Could be. But from all the other posts and my tests it seems we can't reproduce it.
Do you have Lr installed and open too?
Lightroom cloud is not installed, only Classic.
I don't know why, but I have never really been a big fan of keyboard shortcuts. Consequently, I have never tried that keyboard shortcut in LrC. Haven't even thought about it in the past. However, having had attention brought to it, I just highlighted a couple of images and tried it on my Windows 10 computer and it brought up the synchronize dialog as it should. Only thing I can think of is if it isn't working properly on the OP's computer then perhaps that person needs to reset the preferences in LrC to see if that fixes the problem. I apologize for my not understanding the problem.
This is not a "Save as" dialog, it is a dialog to select something: a folder. That is what it says in the top of the dialog and that is what the default button says. It could be that the key combo was somehow assigned to the 'Update Folder Location' command.
I am on Mac so cannot check. It is a Develop Module-specific keywords shortcut.
Denis on Windows that key combo also works if you are in the Library module and ou have multiple images selected. It brings up the Sync Settings dialog.
Thanks Justshootme was just working with the Adobe Lightroom help. Good info to know thanks.
