View Full Version : I hate it when...

I press ctrl+alt+spacebar while I'm looking at an image online so I can see it bigger... *laugh* Do you guys do any silly things with Photoshop shortcuts in completely inappropriate places?

03-27-2010, 06:01 PM
That is so funny Heather. I don't use Photoshop shortcuts, so that isn't my problem, but I do try to do Ctrl + to make the contents of my browser window bigger - it's a Chrome thing, but I try it in IE all the time! :)

:rolling: Too funny, Heather! I have my scrollbutton resize for me, but I've definitely tried to resize other things the same way!
Um, lots of control-z in inappropriate places (and thankfully DH is a computer geek too, so I can say "can I just control-Z that?" and he knows what I'm saying, though he laughs at me for my geekiness :)
I'm not sure what else...

I do the scroll thing, too. What's worse, though, is that I'm so attached to my iPhone feature where you can pinch to make things bigger or smaller, that I catch myself pinching my magazines to zoom in!

Hahaha Mel, that's hilarious! Charla, I do the ctrl+z thing too!

I don't know anything about this control, alt, space bar thing...must be a PC deal. I catch myself holding down the space bar to get the little Photoshop "hand" tool to maneuver around the screen...but I'm on the internet, then realize that ain't happnin'!

Haha, sometimes when I mess up (in real life) I say and "ctrl+z"! :)

It's a Photoshop deal, not a PC deal, Donna... give it a try! You press ctrl+alt+spacebar, and either click on the thing you want larger, or click-drag a square around the area you want to focus in on...

I don't have an alt key. I'm on a Mac.
Never mind....just found it. I use Command plus and minus.
There are so many ways to do things!

03-27-2010, 08:56 PM
Yeah, the alt key corresponds to the command key or however that works... the two control keys bottom leftish, basically! *laugh*

Option. Alt=Option for me. But, I think the Control and Option Keys are switched. Yada yada yada

Oh thank goodness! I thought I was the only one :giggle:

Glad I'm not alone too! :giggle:

I always catch myself using Ctrl + trying to zoom into 100% on stuff in stores before I catch myself and go- DOH! lol

The one I've caught myself doing the most is ctrl+G when I'm organizing files in WinExplorer. I sure wish it would work to group things together like it does in PS; it would be much more convenient that way! :wink:
