Please add an option to Disable Hotkeys in Radeon Software

Jump to solution

Please dear AMD devs. Put a stupid DISABLE HOTKEY option. The amount of customers that want refunds and then buy Nvidia is driving us crazy. Put in a bloody checkbox already. I'm getting tired of DELETING the Radeon Relive EXE's just so clients can have new drivers without stupid hotkeys. I myself am so tempted to just buy NV already. What a stupid annoying oversight.

I did speak with them today and embarrassingly, it was another programs hotkey that were being triggered. But the great guy at AMD helped me figure it out. Kudos to Kyle!!!

Re: Can the person responsible please be fired. You are affecting my business and pushing customers green. Disable hotkeys already.

I would be a little more polite, but you are right basically.

I was working in Photoshop yesterday and could not inverse my selection (ctrl + shift + i). Instead I took a Radeon Screenshot. Haven´t figured out in 3 minutes how to switch that crab off in the drivers settings so I just used the photoshop menus since then.

Gonna look into it today but...

They do have a disable hotkey option... You literally go into the "hotkeys" section and select the hotkey then hit the DELETE key.

Don't take this personally but it's this type of comment that ruins software and makes excuses for sloppy and lazy programming. As someone who has been in the industry for almost 25 years. Having to physically select EACH hotkey and then deleting the assignment is NOT the same as have a simple option to disable ALL hotkeys. What if I just want them disabled for today? Using the solution you suggested, what a mess!? Get the new update next month and then what?

As for being polite, people have been asking for this most basic "feature" since the hotkeys first launched. It's nothing short of pathetic. Not everyone is a darn gamer and needs hotkeys permanently enabled. Thanks for censoring my subject mods...pity your devs / qa don't work for my company as they'd be looking for new jobs or more specifically their dev manager. I see this brain drain in so many software industries of late. All flash and so little on the functional side.

Before I get accused of being anti AMD. I have personally in my house 7pc's 5 of which are AMD's from APU's to R9's. I have deliberately stocked AMD at my stores when suppliers have given me better pricing on Intel's but I am now sick and tired of filling out how many surveys on your software and the most basic of things don't work or are oversights from AMD. I'm all for the underdog but enough is enough already.

This is a 5 min fix. Just wrap up the hotkey code with a simple *if chkHotkeys.Checked then* then please move on to OpenCL on Linux...

Totally agree.

I recently changed to AMD, and have to say, that I already miss NVidia software because of this.
I want export a picture in Gimp, and a Stream&Recording window pops up.
I want the info window in Gimp, and AMD software takes a screenshot.
It's not very user friendly if you must change the hotkeys every time I use a different software or game.

Please AMD, just add this option.

AMD software dev team must live inside a small bubble.
-> No other software present from their view: so no problems.
... and when the real life users report the real problems, AMD can not understand why it is is not working.

Bought my first AMD parts in december 2020.
Up until then, I did not believe the comments about the bad software/drivers.
... well, my mind was changed. This is indeed very frustrating and crazy to see no changes,
no response to customer feedback, no changes to actual problems,
out of the box settings are overclocking the hardware to instability. crazy. 

Wake up AMD. please.

As an editor the short cuts in my program overlap with hotkeys in AMD. I have all disabled the hot keys in AMD but cannot find CTRL+SHIFT+A  which I use all the time when I edit. 

Do you know where this hotkey lives in 2021 version of AMD software?

ALT+Z  Really? You are implicitly overriding default hotkey for word wrap in ANY editor?
