this is a known bug that has slipped through beta testing. All you can do is wait for an update to be posted

Hey,

I just tried it with my new update and all seems to be working as normal.

Alt + Delete fills the layer with the with Layer with the foreground color

Shift + Backspace/delete is to fill with background color.

Interesting. Must admit I did think this was a Windows only bug and I see you are using a Mac. Alt-del can be used on a PC but usually its alt-backspace. It will be interesting to see if commercial actions are affected.

Just found this bug after updating - I use it all the time (ALT + DELETE)

I have also found a way for it to work, ALT + DELETE DELETE - so it double tap on the delete button, fast, to make it work

I actually found that with the new PS CC 2018 update the Alt key is getting stuck or is generally slow. Try the brush tool and press alt to get into the eyedropper - what used to be instant, now takes about a second! And it's not even a set delay, seems to be randomly slower and faster!


I discovered the alt+ 2x Del workaround on Friday too, but it's a nuisance as sometimes the fill happens after one tap, sometimes only after two - pretty crap if you're working blindly with masks and selections!

Another weird problem is that if I tap alt in PS on its own - alt now "sticks" and I get those menu bar highlights as if I were using keyboard accessibility options (so I can press F to open the FIle menu, etc).

So far I'm not happy with this update... I'm gonna have to reinstall CC 2017 for now to be able to actually work at my pace...

Nice work around! I have always used Alt+Delete didn't know Alt+Backspace also worked. but for both need to tap the Backspace/Delete twice now.

Ttherefore, it isn't working on my wacom side express keys..hope they fix this soon! (for now I am trying to get use to filling with the background color or just switch to fill bucket )

Only problem I have had with my 2018 though.

One thing you can try Elaine is pressing the 'x' key to swap foreground and background colors, then ctrl-backspace (on Windows) and that will of course paste in the original foreground color. That should work on your tablet-so 'x' on the keyboard followed by the tablet button for background fill.Another thing that works surprisingly is the 'modifier panel' If you depress 'alt' on that and backspace the shortcut does work as before even though it's broken when used by the keyboard.

I knew about the x thing, but still an annoying extra step to get use to.

But you did remind me I have the alt modifier set up for eyedropper on my pen.

Still requires pressing backspace twice haha

So I've read above that some of you are experiencing slowdowns with shortcut keys, I thought I just had a messed up keyboard, anyone experiencing a delay with the tab key?  I mean, when I want to save a file under a different ext, it takes a while for it to start tabbing through the different options.

i have the same issue with ALT + Backspace not working.. also pressing ALT (to copy a layer) takes up to one second until you see the "duplicate layer" cursor (which is VERY annoying if you work with keyboard shortcuts a lot). Also my impression is that overall performance is GREATLY reduced in comparison to 2017 version. Some project PSDs are not VERY sluggish, which i never had any performance troubles with.

Switching back to CC 2017 version for the time being, unable to work with the current version 😕

you might like to look at my post below

Alt+Delete only works when double tap delete.

It describes making an action to assign a foreground fill to a different key-very easy to do and should suffice till Adobe bring out a fix
