I don't get it: The keyboard-shortcuts dialog has a way to save sets of shortcuts, but no way to load them. What is the point then?
Thanks for any insight.
I just found if you double click the .kys file it will open in Photoshop and it will automatically set the shortcuts you saved in that file. I hope this help you.
Thanks! Most users wouldn't do that, but I guess for now it's the most convenient workaround for Adobe's petulant refusal to fix this.
None of my presets migrated upgrading from PS 2019 to 2021. Have been going in maddening circles all day trying to get my keyboard shortcuts to appear in PS 2021 (exporting/importing, dragging/dropping, incantations, endless Adobe forum arguements, YouTube, etc) and just happened to see your simple, beautiful one sentence solution. THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!!
I love that I am reading this in 2020 and it's still not fixed 😄
It's funny how people can jump to defend almost anythng, including a giant corporation with honestly almost monopoly on the graphics market when someone makes a very valid complain about a nonsensical user experience which breaks all the rules established by not only adobe itself but also kind of the rest of the world doing softwere ever: the rule that if you can save a thing, you usually can load a thing and the two icons tend to be close by. Adobe markets as a professional product that is also user friendly. That is absolutely not a user friendly solution we are talking about here. End of topic 😄 Come on, people.
I ran into this problem when PS updated and wiped out my custom keybinds. I googled it and found this thread- but ironically no real "solution". So I started messing around with it.
I discovered that if you simply open the custom .kys file you create when you export the shortcuts, it installs them.
Not well documented and bizarre, but that's Adobe for you *shrug*.
