Arrow keys to browse Grid

Postby NNN636658844403564528 » Fri May 24, 2019 4:48 pm


I set a few shortcuts to be able to go from single image view to grid view with one key.
The problem is that if I do so I am only able to navigate with the left and right arrows (which I set to previous / next image), but NOT with up and down arrows. To be able to browse up and down I have to click on an image in the grid view. Then I can navigate in all four directions again.

This might sound like a very specific and banal issue, but coming from LR I go crazy every time that I need to move my hand to the mouse just to be able to go through the photos properly.

Please HELP.

Hold CMD/CTRL while using the arrows keys and you can cycle through the images at any time or in any direction, even when you are not clicked into the grid.

I had the same issue, having to click on the image to activate left/right or alternatively hold CMD and the direct key. I just reassigned the keys in the keyboard shortcuts. I think this should also work for up and down.
