    Please download the user guide and look at it. If you had, you'd see that there is a complete list of keyboard codes on the last page.

    I found a free blank keyboard template and have started trying to paste in the mappings from the table in the 2024 User Guide.   So far I have only entered the plain letters in the graphic.  I guess I'd need to consider a page for each of Shift, Ctrl, and Alt.     Probably I'd find that more awkward to use than the table...

    You will save yourself a whole lot of trouble and time if you just download the User Guide and take a look at the last page where they are all listed for you.

    I have the list from the User Guide.   I see the groupings / categories.

    As with other products it takes a while and repeated use to remember the strokes.  It's especially so when there isn't an easy mnemonic about them.  

    I was trying to see whether the locations of their keys might reveal a reason.  Some are just arbitrary to me.

    Maybe a long time ago, with far fewer modules/features/functions, chosen keys were easy to group.  A S D   are adjacent, even though the initials of the functions Local and Effects aren't those letters.

    A - Local

    S - Effects

    D - Develop

    Although I'm sure Browse was implemented early on, it didn't get the next adjacent letter: F.  Instead it's G.

    It was much later on that Resize and Portrait came along, and nearby letters weren't available.    Y for Resize  doesn't seem to have a reason.  At least I is within Portrait.

    I'll find my way, remembering some.  Others I'll just go through the menus and icons.

    G is easy. It shows the Thumbnail view as a Grid of images. 😄 D - Develop, that's obvious.

    A & S are the 1st two keys in the left and open the Local Adjustments and Effects in the same order as the company recommends performing those edits.

    The others I can't figure a reason for either. You just have to memorize them. One trick I use when learning new hotkeys is if I have to go look them up from their Menu entries, I don't just click that entry while I'm there. I close the menu and use the hotkey to reinforce the learning.

    I'm not trying to be obnoxious about referring to the manual, just trying to help. I can see the logic in what you're doing.

    Thanks, Brian.   Yup.  I need to use my fingers,  press those hotkeys, and get more memory cells holding onto them.  :-)
