We love the Photos app extension so much, especially now that we can customize the toolbar! Thank you!!
Two requests:

1. Please auto-import the toolbar we customized in Pixelmator Pro so we don't have to recreate it when we launch the Photos extension.

2. Please add keyboard shortcuts for each tool in the Photos extension. It's fantastic to press "R" for repair, but our workflow would be all the faster if we could quickly press keys to get to Sharpen, Lighten, or Warp, for instance.

Thank you!

Awesome to hear you're enjoying the extension! Normally, the workspace changes applied in the app should also transfer to the extension. Is there any chance you have two versions of Pixelmator Pro on your Mac, perhaps a trial?

As for the keyboard shortcuts, most of them are already taken (see the full list of keyboard shortcuts here ... -pro/1212/) but you could assign your own key combinations to the tools you use the most. You can learn more about customizing keyboard shortcuts here: ... shortcuts/

Thank you! I haven't had two versions installed, so that's curious.

Curious, indeed! In case you're still having this issue, perhaps you could email us about it at with more details about your Mac and Pixelmator Pro version? Thanks in advance!
