Can we have search field in keyboard shortcuts dialog as in new Illustrator. It will be nice to quick find command and remind shortcut or to assign new, Photoshop have more and more commands, who is going to remember all shortcuts and commands, especially when using Creative Suite or Creative Cloud.

I agree that the ubiquitous search fields from After Effects would be useful in the KBSM.

I really like how the Flash Pro CC and AI CC keyboard shortcuts dialogues are searchable. Can you do this with Photoshop CC as well? Just a new feature request submission.

I have to think others have thought of this... but I would love a search field inside the keyboard shortcuts window. As it is now, there is a lot of clicking and searching involved to find specific commands that I would like to assign shortcuts to. This process would be a whole lot easier with a searchable field.

Is it possible that a search function could be created for Photoshop's keyboard shortcuts and menus dialogue boxes so that it is quicker to find the function that I am trying to set a shortcut for?

BUMP. We need keyboard shortcut search. Illustrator has already proven its value.

I think it'd be really great to be able to search for tools in the keyboard shortcut menu like in premiere. I customize shortcuts all the time. In premiere I do it in no time, in photoshop it takes forever to localize the tool I want to make a shortcut for due to not being able to search for it like in premiere.

It could be great (yet simple) feature to add.
(JDI, anyone?)


It isn't comfortable at all to navigate and find the entry you want to edit there.
A nice search box can solve this issue.

i'm 100% on board with kbsc's getting a search/filter and while we're at it, how about adding a fully searchable application? Ps added Find a few versions back, but it's not working as one would hope...

and why is there no search in the Brush panel or Shapes? Trying to track down a specific Brush out of hundreds is never fun...

I added this request back in the CS days already. We have PS 2021 now and there is still no option to search trough Keyboard shortcuts in the editor. WTF?

How do I search for a shortcut? This would be really handy and I don't understand why it's not already added. Or is it hidden somewhere? We all know those times when you accidentally press something like shift + c while in transform and the screen colors change and you panic a little bit because something changed the colors of your document entirely. And you want to reverse it but there's nothing to undo in the actions menu!

In the Photoshop menu...
Edit > Keyboard Shortcuts

 

In this dialog box you can edit and/or create your own keyboard shortcuts.

 

If you want to export out a single list with all the shortcuts on it, click on the Summarize button.

Do you mean in Keyboard Shortcuts dialogue? I asked that few years ago, you can vote for idea https://community.adobe.com/t5/photoshop-ecosystem-ideas/photoshop-search-field-in-keyboard-shortcut...

 

I do not know what exactly you want. Try using Find (Ctrl + F) dialogue then type shortcut to see if something will appear like ctrl+l or similar.

Yes that's what I meant - I want to search for a keyboard shortcut (existing ones) in the Edit > Keyboard shortcuts menu. For those times you accidentally press the wrong key combination, something happened, and you're trying to figure out what happened and which combination caused it, so I can either turn it off or undo it.

 

I upvoted it, but it's only got 20 upvotes now, I don't think it'll ever be added, or at least not any time soon. I mean c'mon, you posted it 9 years ago and still they haven't added it! It's so simple!

 

Sometime I wonder what exactly it is that they are doing there at the Adobe office. As if the CEO and the board is continually partying every day, all day, while the rest of the underpaid team of no less than two employees are sweating their bums off in over time, trying to make things work for us.

 

And the big Adobe building is probably just a huge painted cartboard box that has those two employees changing clothes and walking through the revolving doors continually throughout the day so it looks like a lot of business is going on. Heh, big tech companies..

You can't effectively search for specific shortcuts from within Photoshop, but could search a PDF document. The list I have attached is the one by Trevor Morris and dates back to 2014, and I am sure there have been some minor changes since then.  But it should be mostly correct.

 

This is probably the most useful URL to find the Mac version and other Trevor Morris goodies.

I know this may seem weird and im not sure if its viable but maybe you could make the shortcut search function in the keyboard shortcut in edit? I had to go through tons of options for what im looking for and its hard to find what I need in there. But I know what the button does I just want to rebind it. It would also be really cool if you had a highly recommended set of function bindings maybe based on popularity or to help increase functionality. If someone is making a new button scheme they can just look them up one by one and rebind. I just feel like its an organized mess in there. I would make a button that says Shortcut Search

whatever single letter or alt + letter maybe have all that information come up about it.  I am also now realizing that you could probably look up the function itself as well as the buttons?. Also I think theres a lot about this program that is off putting for most people. Theres too many buttons, no one know where to start, they dont know what the focus of their creative outlet should be but they are starting to use this program cause its highly recommended but that doesnt make it easy to use or it is better said that its not clear. Theres an infinite things great about this program but some of the most important features need to be made clear and maybe even dumbed down visually less buttons can often make things less confusing. I know you guys are in the buisness of making money as well as being kind to students. What if there was a photoshop for children? If i could tell a child that if you are into art and want to start this is the way. Its easy when you make a mistake you step back, was it a mistake? step forward? want to try something new? create a new layer? this is all costing the mother much less money on paper and pencils but they are never to be forgotten. Thank for the great program love art and been a long time fan, thanks Adobe.

How has it been nearly 10 years since this request was made and still no searchable shortcuts. And such an old UI in general to look through the shortcuts. Photoshop team: talk to the Premiere team and ask them for their keyboard shortcuts code!!!
