Using a Mac with CC 20.  Used to be that CMD H would hide the marching ants of a selection.  Now it hides Photoshop. What happened?  How do I fix this, or use a different key to hide the ants?

Sorry I forgot that fixing this behavior has changed - not sure which version or OS - but now:

In Photoshop go Edit > Keyboard Shortcuts, go to View, and change the shortcut for Extras to Cmd-H.

You'll get a warning that this changes an OS shortcut which is fine (I think the OS shortcut changes to Cmd-Ctrl-H). You may need to quit Photoshop and relaunch, but Cmd-H will hide marching ants after that.

 

Otherwise you can continue to use Cmd-Ctl-H to hide selections.

@Jean-François Vibert bonjour!

je remarque que CMD+H est listé deux fois, qu'en est-il s'il n'est utilisé que dans l'un des deux raccourcis ? Normalement, il devrait y avoir un message d'erreur, non?
