In response to a recent question about using the Rotate Page tool, I included a list of letter keys used to activate Tools palette icons. Here, I've included screen shots to make it easier to remember the icons and corresponding letter keys. I hope this will be helpful to Painter users visiting PixelAlley.
Most of the Tools palette icons are the same in earlier versions of Painter, except for the Perspective tool icon, only available in Painter 7, and the earlier version Text tool icon (shown below) which is different.
I use the "E" key to activate the Rotate Page tool. After using it to rotate the image, a single click anywhere in the image returns it to the upright position.
Here's a list of the letter keys
used to activate all of the Tools palette icons from left to right,
beginning on the top row, then across the bottom row from left to right.
In the screen prints, each appropriate tool icon is indented. Where
there are tools hidden below another tool, the tool icon is highlighted
in red or, for the earlier version Text tool, the icon is indented.
