Each year Adobe comes out with new features, so what changed in Photoshop CC 2019? We’ll cover the most important changes we think you should know about.
Changes to Multiple Undo
Prior to Photoshop CC 2019, Cmd–Z (Mac) or Ctrl–Z (Windows) acted as a toggle. It would undo, and then redo the very last thing you did. I always thought this was because of Photoshop’s roots in photography. It was useful to compare the before and after states to see if the retouching/color correction you just applied looks good. Regardless of the reason, it did make Photoshop different than other Creative Cloud apps. CC 2019 changes the keystroke to work like InDesign, Illustrator, etc.
- In CC 2019 each time you hit Cmd–Z (Mac) or Ctrl–Z (Windows), you will go farther back in your file’s history.
- To redo, you now hit Cmd–Shift–Z (Mac) or Ctrl–Shift–Z (Windows).
- Miss the old toggle-style undo? Use Cmd–Opt–Z (Mac) or Ctrl–Alt–Z (Windows).
If you don’t like the new keystrokes, you can revert back to the prior behavior as follows:
- Go into Edit > Keyboard Shortcuts.
- Check on Use Legacy Undo Shortcuts and click OK.
- Restart Photoshop.
