Improve keyboard shortcuts for iPadOS version

Currently, the iPad and iOS versions of Lightroom offer a measly set of keyboard shortcuts that don't cover basic tasks such as mode switching between Edit, Crop, Healing, Clone modes or even applying automatic edits which seems like an awfully common task on such a platform.

 

The full list is here at the moment and here's a screenshot from within the current version of the app for posterity. https://helpx.adobe.com/lightroom-cc/using/keyboard-shortcuts-lightroom-mobile.html

 

Oddly there doesn't appear to be a support article from help.adobe.com about Lightroom CC keyboard shortcu..., unlike with Lightroom Classic which has a massive help document with all possible shortcuts

 

I've attached a screenshot of the list of available shortcuts as it appears in-app on iPadOS running v6.3.0 EC9ADC/56 when holding the Command key which is an operating system wide convention for keyboard shortcut discovery.

 

At a glance, missing on iOS/iPadOS are the following basic shortcuts:

- Command + [ or ] to rotate left or right when browsing shots

- Shift + A to apply Auto Settings on currently selected image(s)

- Command + C to copy all current image settings (the default behavior is akin to Shift + Command + C on iOS for some reason)

- Command + Shift + C to copy specific image settings by selecting them first

- E to open Edit mode

- C to open Crop mode

- H to open Healing Brush mode

- B to open Brush mode (or Selective Edits mode as it's called on iOS)

- K to open Tags

- I to open Info (which is instead use to toggle through info overlays on the shot itself on iOS)

- / to show or hide the Filmstrip at the bottom of the screen when browsing through shots

- J to show clipping

- \ to show the original photo before edits 

- Command + or - to zoom in on the photo

- Space to toggle zoom

 

There are also no shortcuts to: 

- Toggle Histogram with Command + 0

- Toggle Light settings with Command + 1

- Toggle Color settings with Command + 2

- Toggle Effects with Command + 3

- Toggle Detail with Command + 4

- Toggle Optics with Command + 5

 

That's just for the Photo view. I'm sure there are many more opportunities for helpful screenshots such as top-level navigation which offers nearly nothing in Grid view because the overloaded I shortcut that toggles info overlays on each photo. There are no shortcuts to: 

- Command + F to focus the search bar and enable filters

- Alternate between square grid and original aspect ratio grid 

- T to add selected photos to target album (it's quite tedious to move photos to an album on iOS/iPadOS)

- Command + Delete or Delete to immediately delete a photo without tapping through multiple modals

 

I'm sure I'm forgetting a lot of other potentially useful shortcuts as well, but it would be really nice to see an update with a hefty improvement in shortcuts. Thank you.
