I'm guessing you have a huge number of layers: The fastest way is to click+drag over all the layer eyeballs, this works in CS5 at least. Note that visibility changes are not undo-able, i.e. they don't show up in history A better suggestion for the future; get used to organizing layers into groups, then you will have far less 'points' to turn on/off layers. ...

First, there's no right or wrong way to set things up. It really all comes down to what you prefer. And it may take a few weeks to discover what works best for you. I often tell new tablet users to put their mouse away for a week and use only the tablet for everything. This helps acclimate you to the stylus when you've been accustomed to a mouse. What ...

Double-click the thumbnail icon for the text layer. This will highlight the text for editing. I think that's about as close to a shortcut as you'll get.

Yes, the Duplicate (Cmd-D) shortcut is great at times, but it retains the original origin point for any transformation. There are times where this is very beneficial, like step and repeating. If you need to scale several objects throughout the artboard and you do not want them to change position, a better alternative is to select the objects, then use ...

Hazel for Mac could automate a lot of the copying for you, which could be used in conjunction with Dropbox. Like all things that sync, there might be some situations where you'd want to merge or have some other logic happening, but it might not be possible with that setup — I think the best it could do is blindly copy based on date modified. http://www....

The most reliable source for Photoshop shortcuts is going to be Photoshop itself. You can export your shortcuts to an HTML document: Edit → Keyboard Shortcuts, click Summarize. You should then be prompted where to save the HTML page which will show you all your shortcuts in a nice list. This list can be quite extensive and you probably won't use them ...

There's no default method. However, if you choose Edit > Keyboard Shortcuts, then select the Tools option, you can configure your own shortcuts for blending modes. There is an issue where the blend mode won't move off of Normal with the Next and Previous commands. And it won't switch back to Normal when using Previous and Next commands. So you need to ...

A friend helped me find the solution!! Here's my trick: First change to US keyboard. (win+space if you're on W8 or W10) In Photoshop, use the Actions Panel! To keep it tidy, create a new group so you don't mix it with default actions. Create a new action and map it to f.ex. 'F2' in the create new actions dialogue. Record, and Enter 'Alt+LeftBracket' with ...

There is keyboard shortcuts for this: select the object, press R and then Enter to bring up Rotate tool dialog, Alt+P to enable Preview checkbox, Alt+A to return focus back to Angle field. You may keep holding Alt button while pressing P and A. Press Enter when done.

There is no default shortcut, but you can make your own shortcut by going to: Edit -> Keyboard Shortcuts (Alt + Shift + Ctrl + K) Then, under the (second) dropdown menu select Menu Commands and then navigate to Other Panel -> New Swatch. There you can assign your custom keyboard shortcut.

I don't believe you can. There's no way to "write your own shortcut file". If the shortcut is not available in Edit > Keyboard Shortcuts... then that command/element is not available. You could use scripting but an easier route would be to create an action (or collection of actions) and assign an F-key shortcut to the action(s).

not a 100% sure if this is what you're asking, but if it is, then yay! You can adust indents in the Paragraph panel. If this isn't what you're asking then please show me what you're talking about (screenshot) and I'll see if there's anything I can do. Round 2: I don't think there is an easy shortcut like the one you mentioned, not that I'm aware of anyway ...

In CC, press the pop-out menu to enable the additional options. Select "Show Options" Select the "Align To" button and choose "Align to Artboard." After that, any objects you select and use "Align to Center" will be aligned with the center of the currently active artboard.

There isn't one, but there is the ability to create swatch libraries and import them into new documents for easy re-use. @Lauren's suggestion of dragging is marginally faster than clicking the button or using the palette menu.

See if this works for you: Eyedropper your new color. There's a "new swatch" button at the bottom of the Swatches palette. Click that, type the new name. OR Drag the color onto the Swatches palette. The RGB or CYMK values are the new name. Are either of those faster?

Sounds like your file system is wrong or something, it should get stored. Anyway try saving a new Set, and using it as default, maybe CS6's default keyboard shortcut set is getting overwritted on each boot.

They are OS dependent, look under Layer » Arrange
