Hi Everyone,

 

Except for Ctrl + Click Layer selection or Convert to an Action function.

 

How can I assign a hotkey to such a critically important feature of Photoshop, I cannot see this function in the key assignment panel.

 

Can someone please inform me about this?

What is the problem with using an Action in this case?

Hi C.Pfaffenbichler

 

Going to keys like "F2, F3, F4" with "Shift" or "Control" key combinations on the keyboard causes a lot of effort, so for a more optimal result, "Shift + S", "Shift + A" etc .. much more. it is efficient and offers a profitable approach in terms of time in the long term.

 

For this reason, using Action shortcuts or clicking on the object by going to the Layer panel does not give efficient results in frequent use.

 

Thanks for your question.

Worst case you could create a Script which can be assigned a Shortcut viw Edit > Keyboard Shortcuts.

Hi C.Pfaffenbichler

 

I did a little research on the internet, I found a few script examples, but unfortunately, none of them could perform the Ctrl + Click operation. Could you tell me what is wrong with the example here?

 

Thanks for all your efforts.
