Sometimes switching to PS from LR, I will lose the use of my keyboard. Sometimes, by selecting another tool will restore my keyboard, but even switching back to LR my keyboard will still be useless. The only solution is restarting my iMac. It will not always happen, the longer I work in PS
the more often it happens. I tried a corded keyboard, it doesn’t happen. I believe it’s a BlueTooth problem that Adobe has, but trying to get an answer from Adobe is somewhat frustrating, they act like they’ve never heard of the problem. I’ve not seen it in any other programs, just going to PS from LR.
This is not an Adobe problem because Bluetooth keyboard connectivity is an operating system function. Adobe software never gets involved in Bluetooth, it works the same no matter how your keyboard is connected. Here is a list of typical remedies for disconnecting Bluetooth.
Once you’ve gone through the first 6 on the list, #7 (interference) should be considered. Much harder to deal with. Here are the possible sources of Bluetooth interference.
In the end, if it’s interference using your wired keyboard may be the simplest way out of this problem.
Has anyone else had this problem?
