Changing/removing "View using GPU/CPU" does not take effect.
I use the command + e shortcut for another function, but no matter how many times i remove or change this shortcut from "View using GPU/CPU" it immediately reverts back.
It got resolved by assigning the new shortcut for 'View using GPU/CPU' / removing the old. Can be treated as a solution, but it’s still unclear how Illustrator allowed two identical hotkeys exist at the same time (usually a warning gets displayed, and the older command gets blanked). So if anyone has the same problem — please comment.
This is just bonkers.
Again, does not happen for me on Windows... Ctrl+E stays where I put it and it never gets assigned to that toggle.
Will ask some other folk to test it on Mac.
One other note, in the three years or longer this has been happening, I have used three different computers/installs of CC. So I don't believe that a fresh install will do anything.
To continue, I just set GPU preview to cmd+opt+], saved the set and closed/reopened Ai. The GPU preview shortcut reverted again to cmd+E.
Ok, I think I actually did try changing that shortcut in the past and had forgotten (posted this 3 years ago so forgive me). After closing and reopening Ai the shortcut for view using GPU/CPU has reverted to cmd+E and both are simultaneously existing once again. Last time I tried changing the GPU/CPU shortcut, and then deleted it. I will now try changing the shortcut and leaving it as something other than cmd+E. Note that these shortcuts are saved to a set, and that set does not currently list a shortcut for GPU preview.
I should also say that I have tried saving a new set of shortcuts and the issue persists.
Yes it displayed the shortcut for both and would typically work as expand, but perhaps hitting when expand was greyed out, like accidentally hitting the shortcut twice, would then switch to cpu mode. Not sure why both shortcuts existed simultaneously, but I remember trying to set it multiple times and getting the same result. I did not think to change the CPU/GPU shortcut and that seems to have resolved the problem. Thanks
And Ai never warned you about the conflict, like this?
Strange, it immediately removes it from GPU when I try to assign it to Expand...
I’d like to know more, but I assume you might be just happy enough with that and do not want to experiment more.
Do you think it can be marked as Resolved?
So if I get this right, until you removed the Cmd+E from 'GPU/CPU view' and (possibly) replaced it with something else, Ai had been showing it for both commands. And when you actually used the hotkey — it preferred to toggle and not expand, while still displaying both as valid?
The shortcut I assign cmd+E to is Object>Expand. It was listed as the shortcut for both commands as seen in screen shots.
I did change the shortcut for GPU/CPU view to cmd+L and saved. Then deleted that shortcut and saved again. Now cmd+E does not show as the shortcut in the menu.
I save my shortcuts to a file. If/when it happens again I will reload my shortcuts and report, but changing that shortcut seems to have resolved the problem.
OK, this one. Not happening for me on Windows.
I assigned Ctrl+E to Export As ages ago, and it stays.
But I want to help to investigate — and so far you are the only user who reported this. So it’s up to you to make some tests — please.
What happens if you assign Cmd+E to something else than the command you want to have it?
What if you assign something else to 'View using GPU/CPU' instead?
Does it stay in the dialog when you commit changes and open it again? What if you toggle your set and the default one and back?
Do you save the Keyboard Shortcuts in a file? What happens if you load a saved set back in the same session?
this is still the case.
