If you are a using any combination of InDesign with Photoshop or Illustrator, this is good news for you.

You now have the option to use Photoshop or Illustrator keyboard shortcuts in InDesign. If you have these applications installed on your system, you will be asked when you launch InDesign if you want to use keyboard shortcuts consistent with Illustrator or Photoshop. You can then choose either one.

At any other time, you can simply go to Edit>Keyboard Shortcuts to select Adobe Illustrator or Adobe Photoshop shortcuts or to revert to InDesign default shortcuts.
