What’s New in LRKeys v2 for Motibodo users

  1. LRKeys 2 for Motibodo users (or LRKeys2M) is a new, non-editable standalone version of LRKeys, similar to LRKeys Basic.

Motibodo is a popular keyboard shortcut application for Lightroom on Apple Mac. It used to have a version for Windows PCs, but not any longer.

This version of LRKeys is intended to allow users familiar with the Motibodo keyboard mappings to continue with the layout familiar to them. The key mappings have been set to closely reflect the Motibodo mappings, with the exceptions noted below.

  1. Limitations of LRKeys2M

A few shortcuts are missing from LRKeysM. This is either because they don’t have a Lightroom API call, or they can’t be reproduced by a sequence of key presses.

Use Alt+Esc to Bypass/Re-enable LRKeysM, rather than just Esc.

  1. Shortcuts unique to LRKeys2M

Dehaze and Texture do not appear on Motibodo mappings. In LRKeys, Dehaze is mapped to E/R, and Texture to Shift+T/Shift Y.

Where LRKeys2M mappings have masked useful existing Lightroom keyboard shortcuts, these have been remapped to Alt+key in LRKeysM. So for example, the R key usually jumps to the Crop & Straighten panel. But in LRKeys2M, the R key now changes Dehaze. By pressing Alt+R within LRKeys2M, you will jump to the Crop & Straighten panel, without having to Bypass LRKeys2M, then re-enable it (using Alt+Esc).

B) Other changes since LRKeys Basic v1:

  1. Simplified menu and menu bar buttons

Duplicate buttons and deprecated features removed. Fonts adjusted to make the important “Start LRKeys plug-in” button more prominent.

  1. Made it easier to free up license keys for re-use

Renamed this feature Help | Free up used license keys, and added it to the menu even when this instance of LRKeys2M is not registered. So you no longer need to contact me if you move computers and want to re-use your existing license keys on the newly installed LRKeys2M!

  1. Improved display of key map in LRKeys main screen

The design of the main screen has had an overhaul to bring it in line with LRKeys Pro. This screen shows your key map graphically.

Also moved the screen displaying all the Lightroom default keyboard shortcuts to Help | View Lightroom Defaults.
