Better keyboard shortcuts through the application consistent between Mac/Win and bonus for a shortcut editor

Good morning @zkarj,

It’s true, there is no keyword for Horizon and you can convert your question to a feature request if you wish.

I will vote for it, if you change this into a request :slight_smile:

I didn’t realise how easy it was to move to the feature requests. Vote away!

Note, however, that elsewhere I am advocating this function be combined with cropping. Still… a keyboard shortcut could be delivered a lot more easily (quickly) than a new tool.

Ctrl + scroll and Alt + scroll can’t be shorcuts for all pentablets. It works only for mouses…

In LR and Affinity, I don’t had this issue.

Yes, the support of pentablets really could be enhanced …

the horizon tool doesn’t need only a invocation shortcut but also an efficient way to set the angle with the keyboard. For example, the step size needs to be sensible (0,5° or 0,25°) or adjustable.

This may help;

  • if you Right-Click either side of the Horizon slider then the slider value will increment/decrement by intervals of +/- 0.10
  • this works for all sliders - as an excellent way to “skip” thru setting values.

This behavior only works on Windows. No right-click slider nudge on Mac. @StevenL

Really ? !!! … That’s a major miss then, I reckon.


0,1° is way too fine, resulting in too many clicks needed. In many images, 1° tolerance isn’t detectable. Very few images need 0,25° precision.

User-defined hotkeys. C’mon DxO, this should have been implemented since PL1.
Do you know who has that? The AMAZING freeware IrfanView. The expensive Lightroom. Excel. GIMP. Steam. You know, programs that let the user use the program at their best convenience and allows freedom to use whether you are in Windows or Mac and have any physical keyboard with any language defined.


Please klick the blue Vote button on the top of the FR

39 will be the result after your click :wink:


Didn’t know about the blue button. Clicked!!


Even CorelDraw has this! You can create and edit shortcuts for just about any function and you can set a shortcut to trigger multiple functions.

There are some really illogical keyboard actions that PL has that I wish I could fix. Like, I find it really irritating that the Escape key Enters a crop! And the Delete button doesn’t work on the thumbnail display.

Yes, each time I have to revert that unwanted action with Crtl + Z.

ESC is a common standard to leave things unaltered,
but NOT to apply a modification like with hitting ENTER or clicking on APPLY.

@DxO_Support-Team – please take note and pass on it


Sometimes I think programmers don’t speak human, but I guess the truth is there is such a huge divide between the code and the human interface and stuff just falls through the crack. I wish they’d listen more, though.

Please. So much.

Like, CTRL+7 for “pick”? Really? Who came up with that? I want one hand on the arrow keys and one hand on the pick/unpick buttons. I’ve got photos to get through!
