I have intel macbook pro, ssd with 16 gigs of ram, Big Sur OS
On the previous version of photoshop (23.53) I was, and still am, able to cycle between open files in Photoshop by using a cmd ~ tilda keyboard shortcut.
But since I updatd to Photoshop 24.01 I am not able to do that any more. Does someone knows how to enable that shortcut?
Does it work in other applications?
Look into Edit > Keyboard shortcuts, they may need editing or resetting etc.
Are you on a US keyboard and English version of Photoshop and operating system?
As a last resort a script can do this and have a custom keyboard shortcut applied, however, you shouldn't need to do so.
Hi applogies for late reply. I am on UK English, last version of photoshop 24.0.1 and MacOS Big Sur.
I have Macbook Pro from late 2013.
Just one other thing, cmd ~ is working on an older version of Photshop I have which is 23.5.3. But its not working on 24.0.1
On my Mac, cmd ~ tilda works as it should. So indeed, it may be some keyboard shortcut in Photoshop itself or maybe in your Mac Keyboard Preferences (keyboard shortcut preferences, select the option 'move focus to next window' under the 'keyboard' section).
I dont see that 'move focus to next window' option in Keyboard Preferences.
You’re close…it’s in the Shortcuts tab.
Hi. On a Mac, I think you'll find it's Control Tab to switch among open images. Command+Tilde switches among open apps.
The funny thing about Photoshop on Mac is that it supports two shortcuts for switching active windows. Early versions of Mac Photoshop used Control-Tab which I think was common in Classic Mac OS. After Apple switched to Mac OS X and made Command-` the system default for cycling open windows, Photoshop adopted that too. The current version of Mac Photoshop still supports both the new and old window cycling shortcuts, so even today you can still use Control-Tab. (Command-Tab is the Mac shortcut for application switching.)
That’s how it works on US English keyboards, might be different for other keyboard layouts.
