View Full Version : Photoshop altering keyboard layout

04-30-2010, 03:37 PM
Hey, I've been having some problems with writing in Photoshop. It seems that the program changes the layout of my keyboards, completely randomly. I'm pretty sure that it changes to this (http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/3/3a/Qwerty.svg), but since I'm Danish, the keys on my keyboard look like this (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:KB_Danish.svg). Like I said, it happens randomly when I try to write in text fields in Photoshop, and it only happens in Photoshop. I can switch to any other app, like Firefox or Word, and they take input from my keyboard just fine.

I've been looking on Google, but I can't seem to find anyone with my specific problem. Do any of you have any suggestions?

Thanks in advance.

You may have a keyboard shortcut conflict. Windows uses alt+shift to change layouts if you have the change keyboards service running. I think there's a way to lock Windows into using a particular layout so that you don't need the service running for non-Qwerty layouts, but I'm not sure how it's done.

Yeah, that did it. The Windows shortcut for switching between layouts is alt-shift and I have a few alt-shift shortcuts that I use regularly. Thanks for the help! :D
