Shortcuts listed by David Revoy


I agree here with Lukas, keep standard the most shortcuts possible if you can make them works because here in Gnome I never could really use Krita 's shortcuts ; they seam to be broken and sometime works ( all ) and sometimes only few works. So, it's a bit frustrating at the moment, and I prefer click on the menu. I never did a bug repport about it because I don't know the reason why sometimes it works or sometime it doesn't.

For other shortcuts , here are under the common Industry* standards for 2D painting, just for information of what most of painting user are used to do : (*Industry = Manga Studio / Photoshop / Painter / Sai etc... )

Pan : space Zoom in : Ctrl space Zoom out : Ctrl alt space ( The navigation standard Adobe / QuarkXpress and so all graphic industry )

Color picker : alt

Duplicate : Ctrl J Duplicate all visible : Ctrl Maj J Flat : Ctrl E Transform: Ctrl T

Undo : Ctrl Z Redo : Ctrl Y

Select All : Ctrl A Deselect All : Ctrl D Invert (filter negatif ) : Ctrl i Invert select : Ctrl Maj i Tweak color hue/sat/lum : Ctrl U ( colorize picture ; Ctrl Maj U ) Tweak levels : Ctrl L Tweak curves : Ctrl B Redo last filter : Ctrl F

Copy : Ctrl C Copy threw all layers : Ctrl Shift C Paste : Ctrl V Cut : Ctrl X Save : Ctrl S Save As : Ctrl Maj S Open : Ctrl O New : Ctrl N

Brush Tool : B Eraser : E Text Tool : T ( or Ctrl + T )

type on number : set brush opacity ( ex: 5=50% 55=55% 100=100% 9=90% 09=09% )

So , this is the one I remember while writing, also the most used by my last Photoshop / Painter students. Only with this list is productive. Even if most this one makes not a lot of sense for 100% linux users, they are standards and most user know them as playing piano. If I would sell piano ; I would not redesign the position of the C , G# and A or I would have less customers :-D

Just my thought about :)


( PS : Yayyy ! Krita won the 'performance' competition between Gimp-painter and Mypaint on my new iCore7 : 2010-10-22_screenshot_001-net.jpg ; it use most of all thread more and less while Gimp painting process and Mypaint saturate one core only ... :( ... But that's very 'Pro' from the Krita dev , cool ! Is it possible to scale the brush mask more than x 2 ? )
