    OK, Adobe decided to use Cmd-H (which virtually all other Mac apps use to
    hide the current app) for something else and assigned Shift-Cmd-H to hide.

    But even that doesn't work for me.

    Am I the only one who is experiencing this?

    PS CS 8.0; OS X 10.3.8

    Thanks,

    no, apple decided to use cmd-h, cmd-m and cmd-` which many other apps
    already had been using for years, including photoshop. apple's handling
    is used if the app doesn't have them previously assigned.

    some apps simply switched the commands to cmd-shift-h or another letter
    entirely. sometimes there is a preference setting to choose between the
    way it was or apple's new 'standard.'

    with photoshop 7, one could pick 'use system shortcut keys' in
    preferences, but in photoshop cs, one can assign any key to any menu in
    the keyboard shortcuts dialog (edit menu/keyboard shortcuts...). simply
    set photoshop/hide photoshop to cmd-h. you will also need to resolve
    the conflict with show extras, which currently is cmd-h.

    That is, cmd-ctrl-H, not shift-cmd-H.

    Sorry.

    This is one of those things that I'd never thought might even be an option.
    So I never thought to look in the manual.

    Thanks!
