Since CTRL-F is now used to find something, the shortcut to apply the last filter is now CTRL-ALT-F. That means we no longer have a shortcut to open the last used filter dialog box so we can alter the settings. Why on god's green earth would Adobe change that? Do they really think we always apply the exact same settings every time we need to apply a filter? This was a shortcut I used dozens of times a day, and now I have to manually select the filter every damned time I need to apply it. Come on Adobe, this is just plain stupid.

Thanks. I can reproduce this issue with the Last Filter with Dialog box not working with the default Keyboard Shortcuts. I've logged an issue for engineering. The workaround I could find is to map Last Filter back to the legacy Cmd + F, and then Cmd + Opt + F will bring up the last filter with dialog correctly.

As noted, you can customize the keyboard shortcuts so that Last Used Filter uses Cmd + F by select Edit > Keyboard Shortcuts... This change was made to make Cmd + F consistent with other applications that do search.

Same here. I hate the new update. 2015.5 was so good you just knew they were going to mess something up.

You must still be on v 2015-5. In 2017, at least on a PC, ctrl-f is the shortcut to the new search function dialog box.

I agree with Chuck. The shortcut to the last filter dialogue was one I used during my sharpening process on nearly every image that I sharpen.

Up to now I have never required the search feature and I'm sure they could have found a better shortcut for 'Search'.

I am on a PC and the same filter is Ctrl+F. As far as I know there is no shortcut for the Searchbar on a Windows machine.

Y'all using photoshop cc 2017 could just go to Edit>Keyboard Shortcuts in photoshop and under Application Menus>Filter change Last Filter to Ctrl or Command + F to get Last Filter
as in previous photoshop versions.

Then Ctrl+Alt+ F and Command+Option+F will work again for repeat filter with dialog.

That's weird because I just installed 2017 and my ctrl+f is still repeat last filter. I even tried resetting preferences thinking it was a glitch only it still repeating the last filter. Not complaining, just saying!

That is strange. The only thing I can think of is it preserved your prefs if you already had custom/saved KB Shortcuts (maybe saved with workspace). But it would seem that prefs restore would blast that away. If you go to Edit > Keyboard Shortcuts... does the pop-up for "Set" say default?

Mac version here but same problem.  Attempting to assign the shortcut option/alt command F gives the warning that it is already assigned as open last filter dialog, but it clearly is not functioning.

Mac version here but same problem.  The remapping on command F to "search" is not the problem. Opening most recent filter DIALOG (which should be alt/option command F) is missing.  Attempting to assign the shortcut option/alt command F gives the warning that it is already assigned to "open last filter dialog", but that key command is clearly is not functioning.RackMultipart2017012375448sh3l-656c03e5-adbe-4a1b-8f6b-c1c01b438ec3-1769399694.png

Thanks, that did the trick!  The last filter dialog is an option I use very often.  For now search successfully is remapped as well.

We've found that Command-Control-Option-F will reopen the Filter dialog on a Mac. But, we can not find a comparable shortcut for the PC. Do you know if there is one? Thanks! 🙂

Have you tried adding the Command (Windows) key and/or the Shift key to Control-Alt-F?

Using CC2019 and Windows this bug still seem to be happening. The suggested workaround with re-mapping Ctl-F did not resolve it. No combination of modifiers seems to work. Is this just me, or is this still a thing?

I have tested with the workspace reset to default.

Thanks in advance
