P: Keyboard shortcuts on the iPad (w/ keyboard attached)

Feature request for Lightroom mobile

Use case: Making picks and rating photos -- while using an iPad
It would be great if the keyboard shortcuts I already use at my Mac would also work on the iPad. I frequently use a keyboard for my iPad (I think a lot of other iPad ninjas do too) and if I could use keyboard shortcuts to make my ratings and picks, things would really fly!

Yes please - exactly what I'm looking for. Just adding "left / right / X / P / numeric ratings" to navigate and edit down to keepers would be a big help.

Not sure if they are present on iPad, but I occasionally use iPhone for flagging photos in Lightroom mobile on my iPhone 6s with a Bluetooth keyboard. I'm sad to find that there aren't keyboard shortcuts (P, U, X, 1-5, 6-9) for flagging and marking photos. This seems like it would be a fairly easy thing to execute and wouldn't do any harm to have even if not a lot of people would use it. I def would!

Likewise, when using a keyboard cover with an iPad it’s a shame that the only high-level shortcut available in Lightroom is I (Cycle Info Overlay) when the following should be available:
- P for People tab
- A for All Photos
- R for Recently Added
- S or Command + F to focus the search input field, delete to clear existing search terms one by one if the input field is empty
- Arrow Keys (Up, Down, Left, Right) to navigate through individual images in Grid mode just as it currently works in individual image mode
- 1,2,3,4,5,P,U,X for flag individual images or multi-image selections in Grid mode

I’m sure a lot more shortcuts could be added. With the upcoming iPadOS this should probably be a great addition to make Lightroom a lot more capable for iPad and iPad Pro users.

This 5 year old topic pretty much covers it but unfortunately we’re still waiting for full keyboard support.  I’d just like a key to zoom 1:1 and back out again, that would certainly speed things up instead of having to double tap the screen multiple times.

Looks like it’s working! I haven’t tested all the shortcuts fully, but X does reject and P sets it to picked. Very exciting. Let me know if anyone finds more shortcuts.

I'd also like to see the use of keyboard shortcuts to allow group selections of photos in the mobile version. Such as holding shift to select a range of photos. Having to tap each one is very tedious compared to desktop.
