Hi there,


I'd like to know were I can find the "tilde" (~) shortcut in an AZERTY keyboard ? (The shortcut that allows the user to toggle in between the brush tool in "normal mode" and in "clear mode")
And is it possible to change that shortcut to another one that suits my AZERTY keyboard ?
Does anyone know about this matter ?

By the way, I find it a bit odd that a lot of shortcuts are very difficult to access when you don't use an English keyboard.

Thankyou very much.

Merlin PARDO.

Try Shift plus which is to the left of the w. I think that's the tilde equivalent on AZERTY keyboards.

 

The tilde key toggles between the brush tool and the eraser tool when pressed. (Since Photoshop 2020).

As I understand it, this is a dedicated shortcut like the Tab or Esc key and can't be changed.

Gene, Wikipedia has a number of different images for the AZERTY layout depending on operating system, but most of them show a modified number 2 key.  I don't know for sure what the blue culour signifies.

Tilde

  • The tilde is available under Windows by using a combination of the  Alt Gr  +  é  keys, followed by the letter requiring the tilde.
  • On Macs, the "ñ" can be obtained by the combination of Alt + N keys, followed by the N key.
  • In the Belgian AZERTY layout, it can be generated by a combination of  Alt Gr  +  = .

I picked the Apple Support Community's answer even if it was tagged "MacOS and Windows" and the answer given here as the solution.

https://discussions.apple.com/thread/3775219?answerId=17740205022#17740205022

 

Going to the Brush/Eraser hotkey, it's actually the `/~ key on a QWERTY keyboard and selecting only the brush first, then pressing that key will flip it to the eraser.  ` and ~ will do the same thing.

 

While QWERTY Photoshop uses this key, I'm guessing the AZERTY Shift +  >/< key would be the equivalent, but not sure if it has been adopted yet as the Brush/Eraser switch key.

 

We will need more information as to what AZERTY keyboard he has if it's not the French keyboard.
