Hi all

I've somehow managed to remove the shortcut for 'Merge All Visible Layers on to New Layer' (CMND+Opt+Shift+E) - something I didn't appreciate the importance of until it was gone! and now can't find it in the menus in order to reassign the shortcut again. Can anyone help?

I've jumped on a colleague's system and attempted to reassign the same shortcut to identify the name of the command and it is the only one I've ever seen accompanied with a message informing you that you cannot assign a different shortcut to that action, so I strongly suspect it's a command which exists only through the shortcut and the only way of restoring it is to reset my shortcuts, but they are so comprehensively altered and tailored to me that I would much prefer not to!

Any help would be hugely appreciated! If not, is there any way I can see an overview of all my shortcut alterations so I can at least make a note of them and then recreate them once I have reset them? Thanks!

Hi Alex,AFAIK, you can only do this by holding the Option key and either using the keyboard shortcut or the panel menu. Check to see if maybe Merge Visible got changed from Panel Menus > Layers.~ Jane

It is under the main menu: Edit>Keyboard shortcuts... then click summarize

it will create an HTM file for you with all the shortcuts.

Hi Grant

I did see that and assumed it would basically save my shortcuts, which is great, but it would do so without the one I want included!

Hi Jane

Thank you! You saying that holding option while clicking the menu command made me realise that it isn't actually it's own command, but is instead a modifier of the 'merge visible layers' command, which I had previously altered! I've changed that one back to being CMND+SHIFT+E and now CMND+SHIFT+OPTION+E has gone back to what I wanted. Thanks!
