Is there a keyboard shortcut for "Toggle mask visibility"? I can do this by ALT-clicking on the layer's mask, but I would like to assign a shortcut for this on a button on my Wacom Intuos 4 drawing tablet. So far I haven't found a menu shortcut for it, nor have I found a way to add my own (Edit-Keyboard shortcuts) as the function isn't listed there.
Is there a way to add a keyboard shortcut or marking menu shortcut for visibility? It would be really convenient to be able to shift-click several objects and toggle the visibility of them. I have a mouse with numerous buttons that are mapped to commonly used IV features, but I cannot find a way to map a visibility toggle.
As I am using Layer Comps more frequently, i find myself frequently needing to toggle the visibility of layer groups, which contain several sub-groups. I tried all the shift + cmd + option - click variations, but none seems to do the trick.
here an example:
Visibility Type Name OFF Group Row ON Group Button 1 OFF Text Help! OFF Shape Bg ON Group Button 2 OFF Text Help Please! OFF Shape Bg
so what i am looking for is a short-cut so that when i click on the visibility of the Group Row, it will turn on the visibility of all the layers contained.
I just recently discovered the keyboard shortcut for toggling the current layer on and off and it is an incredible time saver. Is it possible to create a keyboard shortcut dedicated to toggle a specific layer on and off regardless of what layer I am working on? I use Photoshop for painting and I'll have a layer set up like an overlay, with my line drawing set to Multiply blending mode at about 25% opacity.
However, as the painting progresses, I need to turn that layer on and off continuously to be able to see my painting without the lines overlayed. I know I lose a lot of time having to go over and turn the eye off and then back on over on the layers pallete. I've tried setting something up as an Action, and had a shortlived success, but when I added new layers or moved them around after setting it up, it stops working. I have to say, it was my first attempt at creating an Action of any kind, so there may be a way to keep it working regardless of what I do to the other layers, Having the ability to somehow dedicate a key for quick toggling of my drawing layer would be another tremendous time saver.
How to toggle the layer lock/visibility in CS6 than in the earlier versions.
It seems that there's more padding around the lock/visibility icon, and you have to be really precise to click it... increasing the row size doesn't really make any difference, as the "padding" is still there. Wheres in the earlier versions clicking anywhere within the toggle box would enable/disable it.
Since weld symbols are regularly used in my day to day work, i thought of making a dynamic block. I had zero knowledge of dynamic blocks at that time. I realized that its actually very difficult to make a type of dynamic block i wanted. So instead of breaking my head to create it, its better to downloaded it.
Attached is the drawing i found on a forum. Its extremely cool, that's exactly what i wanted. The multiple toggle is extremely useful. That's what i wanted but was unable to create.
How this multiple lookup toggle were created without any visibility state?
I have been looking for a way to toggle which brush is selected with a custom key but I cant seem to figure out how to do it. Perhaps even better would be to select specific tool presets with custom keys.
I should also note that I am aware of the shortcut action "Select Brush by Index", however it always selects the first brush. Is there a way to change the index number?
I have a problem with this command : "Toggle composite and grayscale mask in Quick Mask mode"I know i have to press the tidle key " ~ " to activate it but i'm using an Azerty keyboard (belgium) and i have trouble with it.The only way i can use the tidle key on my keyboard is to press "Option + n" keys.
So in Photoshop, i load a channel selection, turn into "quick mask mode" and then press "Option + n", but nothing happens.If i try with "Command+Option+n", i open the window for a new document.I have tried ALL combination of keys but nothing worked.I have also tried to change the keyboard input to Britain, Usa, etc but it still doesn't work.
I'm using the english version of Photoshop CS6 (Subscription), and an Azerty Keyboard (Belgium) on a Mac Osx Snow leopard.How can i solve this problem ?
Since downloaded an upgrade trial of LR5.2 (from LR4.3, I believe), the backslash key () is no longer showing me the 'before edits' version of my image. The word "Before" does appear in the top right hand corner, but no changes appear along with this. I am using an english version of LR, with an english keyboard. The shortcut used to work for me in LR4.3! And I used it all the time for toggling back and forth while editing.
The current shortcut for toggle pick tool is ALT+SPACE BAR, but CorelDRAW X5 do not allows to change to CRTL+SPACE BAR (as I´d prefer it). There´s any other shortcut using this key combination.
Disregard what I wrote above. But for some of these mysteries of the computer, I´ve got it: CTRL + SPACE BAR works!. Do not ask how that happened, because I did nothing different from what I had been done before. It just worked. I guess that myself or CorelDRAW were not in a good day. (But still think it was the CorelDRAW - lol).
I'd like to set up a keyboard shortcut so that when I press the 'V' key, inventor toggles the visibility of the selected part or assembly. However, "Visibility" seems to be about the only command that doesn't exist in the list of keyboard shortcuts*. I found this post in which someone says it's not possible, but might be using VBA. I've done some iLogic but know nothing about Inventor's inner-working VBA. I'm wondering if there's some workaround, VBA or otherwise, that'll allow me to toggle visibility using the 'V' key.
*actually it does but it says it's only available for use in Inventor Studio. Go figure.

I want to set a keyboard shortcut for toggling the visibility of User Work Planes in 2013. I can't seem to find a way to do it. I am able to find it in 2012. Has this been removed from the customize menu in 2013? See attaced pic
So i'm trying to get the clipping mask shortcut working for Photoshop CC on OS X 10.9, when I try to use the shortcut, nothing happens. I even tried deleting the shortcut and remaking it, but when I remake it, it doesn't recognize I'm pressing Command Option G, even though I can press these keys in the System Keyboard Shortcuts and it works, for some reason Photoshop is ignoring me pressing Command and Option at the same time?
Also sometimes when I press Command Option Z to undo it just ignores it as well, I have to manually undo the change using my mouse, then it works again.
For a roadway project I am creating alignment detail sheets. For the first project, only a portion of the final road is being constructed. I have the proposed alignment brought in with data shortcuts and will use various styles for the labeling. But I only need a few different sections of this alignment to be shown. Is there a way I can set clip boundaries or mask out the sections I don't want to show?
I've often been annoyed by the fact that that I need to go into the layer panel each time I need to switch between editing a layer and editing it's mask. Surely there must be a way to do this with a shortcut. I found a way to disable the layer mask in the shortcut menu, but this is not something I need to do that often. Switching between layer and layer mask, however, happens all the time - at least in my workflow.
how to manipulate the size of the wipeout for a text mask.
Simply selecting the masked text in C3D 2011 provided pick boxes at the four corners of the wipeout, making it very easy to manipulate the size of the wipeout box. I'm hoping to do the same in C3D 2012, but the wipeout seems to be treated like a block and lacks the pick boxes.A system variable maybe?
While creating various circular masks with a radial gradient from white to black, whenever I change the blending mode of the mask path Ai will throw me out of mask mode into layer editing mode. Since this is on a large document of ~2Gb file with multiple artbords for large poster & UI refresh speed is slow, this has become quite frustrating. Is this normal Ai behaviour?
Once I use a Clipping Mask on a layer is the entire document covered in a mask?
And/or is all the artwork from then on inside the mask?
I've read about how to add and how to remove art from a mask. I've read about how to make and release and lots of other things.
So, then I went and found a lesson that contained the use of a Clipping Mask.
I am suppose to Select the main shape and "just" copy it and move it down (doesn't say rather to Paste in front or back but I assumed in back ~ not that it has mattered thus far)
However, while making the main shape I used Gradient Mesh and used an Offset to create a "replica" and so when I go to Select the main shape the mesh is selected and so when I Paste (in back ~ seems most logical) and then move it down the details such as the colors of the Gradient and other such things are visible in front ~ ??
So, I have been trying to abate my problem in lots of different ways.
I have tried using the Pen tool to draw behind the main shape, I've tried making a New Layer and placing it above and below and inbetween the main shape layer, I've tried adding the artwork to the Mask ... I've tried everything I can think of and I've been through many an article in the manual and FAQ's to no avail.
I suppose, what I think I need to know ... is, how ... how on earth do I draw behind this main shape? Am I not able to do it because I am not getting behind the Mask?
I know about the keyboard shortcut keys for the toolbox -- for example, G will activate the Gradient/Paint Bucket tool, whichever is active at that time. I'm wondering if there is a way to use the keyboard to toggle between these two, so I can switch/select one or the other without using the mouse to select.
