This just fixed about half of my complaint list for photoshop CS 5.5.
Good riddance to the alt-thief, hello to the autosave I've been wanting for years. :w00t:

You are a wonderful human being and I love you.
Which I mean in the most platonic, least creepy way possible. :XD:

Not working in CC, im going crazy

You, sir, are a life saver. I was really annoyed by the Alt-key getting activated whenever I didn't want it to.

I just have a small request. I have an AHK script running all the time on my laptop. I just wanted to use Alt-key feature of yours without the other functions. I went through the source files, but couldn't get the exact code for that function. Can you please provide me with ONLY the Alt-key disabling AHK script? I would be much obliged. Thanks. :)

THANK YOU!! The Alt key issue was driving me crazy.

Any chance I can use this for Adobe Illustrator too?

Goddamn Alt key. Thank you, Adobe forums wasn't helping!

Super useful stuff, mate.

Heya! I noticed that disabling ALT menu allows the keyboard alt key to still work but not the button on my tablet assigned to that a fault of the wacom driver? or is it something you're able to fix? Thanks!
millionart Featured By Owner Aug 11, 2014  Professional Digital Artist
This software does not support the Wacom tablet buttons analog functions.
Powerdusk Featured By Owner Aug 12, 2014  Professional Digital Artist
Bummer, is there any way I can modify it myself to work with them? :\

Thank you soooooo much.... <3
timelover Featured By Owner Jul 21, 2014
I dont get  the difference among PRECISE, CENTER and COMPATIBILITY.

Also, do you think you can make the "Disable Alt menu" for simulated keys as well? I have the middle mouse button remapped to "Alt" with autohotkey. However, that remapped Alt is still activating the menu. Only Alt pressed through keyboard is disabled.

kenha604 Featured By Owner Jul 18, 2014
Oh my god how do I donate to you!?!? The ALT menu has driven me crazy and this is finally the fix I've been looking for!
millionart Featured By Owner Jul 20, 2014  Professional Digital Artist
No need donate, have fun and tell your friends. :p
SoulKarl Featured By Owner Jun 3, 2014
hey millionart!  Just downloaded this for use with CC, and I'm having a problem where it's disabling alt click on my pen (I use the 1st click on the pen for alt so I can color pick easier)  Any ideas what I might be able to do to remedy this?  Thanks a bunch :D and thank you for this awesome mod :]

also if you're open to suggestions for future updates (assuming you are still updating this) I'd love to see some ability to change the functionality of the # keys.  I really dislike having them set to opacity and having adobe lock us COMPLETELY out of editing them (or the F# keys)

thanks again dude :D you rule!
Tobl Featured By Owner May 14, 2014
Hi, just found this and am wondering if one could use this with Illustrator? Of course most of the options are pretty useless there, but if I disabled everything except for the save-prompt and the alt-fix, should it work? Right now, I'm trying and failing, but I don't know if it's my fault or if the script doesn't work that way.
millionart Featured By Owner May 14, 2014  Professional Digital Artist
Not works for Illustrator, because I am not useing it.
But you can edit the script for it, good luck.

Just found this trough a search, but it only works on CS5 and previous. Any chance we'll see an update for CS6?
The ALT key activating the menu is so annoying
millionart Featured By Owner Mar 26, 2014  Professional Digital Artist
It works fine even on CS6 and CC. I,m working on it.
WannaGoToHeaven Featured By Owner Mar 31, 2014  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
Hmmm well here's the error message I get
Error: Missing coordinates, Please try thefollowing solution:
-Set correctly in the program you are currently using Photoshop version
-set the system themen to the default
-a front window of influence, maybe need to turn it off
-check the photoshop version of the file folder picture is consistently (see note)

The first can't be fixed as the config only lets you select PS 6-7 and CS1-CS5.
Second I don't get
Third I checked and nothing fixed it
Fourth I don't get
millionart Featured By Owner May 14, 2014  Professional Digital Artist
BUG has been confirmed, I will try to fix it recently.
WannaGoToHeaven Featured By Owner May 14, 2014  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
Thanks :)
Cane-force Featured By Owner Mar 27, 2014  Student Digital Artist
Same results here. I have CS6 and i can't that feature to work for me either. I would be sooo grateful if this could get resolved! The other stuff seems to work, but the "alt menu blocker" does not work even if the box is checked.
WannaGoToHeaven Featured By Owner Mar 25, 2014  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
Saw you wrote it works on CS6 but I keep getting an error message if I tick the box to map the color picker to ALT
lvuDesign Featured By Owner Feb 20, 2014  Professional Digital Artist
I was searching a way to disable alt key menu freeze for a long time. Especially in Illustrator.

The annoying alt key behaviour is also disabled in Illustrator (tested CS5).
Man, many thanks!
7circle Featured By Owner Feb 6, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Awesome program, but i have a little annoying problem.
I try to use it mostly for HUD color picker but when i press the appropriate hotkey it very often change to 'hand tool', which is pretty uncomfortable for work. I need to click few times around until HUD color is activate, but sometimes it opens my brush selection...  I use Wacom Intuos4, but i doubt this is the issue.

will be most thankful for some solution!

Nevertheless - awesome work! :)
lamc089 Featured By Owner Feb 4, 2015
Disable compatibility mode.
wyatt-glenn Featured By Owner Jan 3, 2014  Professional General Artist
Hello, first of all, thanks for making this tool, I'm glad you did.  
I'm curious if you could make a fix that would allow it to work better with the wacom express keys.  It looks like when you set them to tilda, the express keys don't hold down.   Where as modifiers like Alt or Shift are held down like they should.  If you make it so that you could make shift or alt be hotkeys in APassistant rather than just shift + something else.  I would really appreciate it,  Thanks!  
Drachorn Featured By Owner Dec 6, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I am having issues getting this to run for my CS3, I keep getting the error:

Error: Can't load icon. The current thead will exit.

Specifically: C:\Users\Drachorn\Desktop\Data\tray.ico

--> 075:Menu,Tray,Icon,%A_scriptdir%\Data\tray.ico,,1

Can you suggest a fix for this? 

Having autosave is a superb idea and I would love to utilize the feature
millionart Featured By Owner Dec 7, 2013  Professional Digital Artist
Maybe this file is deleted by mistake.
Try to re-extract it to another directory (not the desktop), and run.
Drachorn Featured By Owner Dec 7, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
That didnt seem to work either D: Sorry to bother you with this 
Ranivius Featured By Owner Sep 28, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
This is THE MOST useful plugin-script for photoshop I have ever found. Thank you sooo much for creating this and of course sharing with us!

ErgoCogito Featured By Owner Apr 4, 2013  Student Digital Artist
I have everything working, and I was excited to try the color picker hotkey. Every time I use the hotkey, though, a little balloon pops up to tell me that I need to enable OpenGL drawing. Which I've done. I can still use the color picker just fine, but the notice popping up is very annoying. Is there something I can do to prevent that besides just disabling notifications from your program?
vaskplekk Featured By Owner Feb 10, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Cheers for the app! Appreciate the alt menu disabling feature.
dksou1 Featured By Owner Feb 5, 2013

Hi, thanks for your great tool
a little thing: i'm always painting with two window (of same document)
when i hit the hotkey Hor the HUD color, one time it appear in the second view (in my second monitor) another in the view i'm working on. it's weird coz the focus is always on the view i'm working on (it don't happen with the usual hotkey:alt+shift+rmouse)
loumizhu Featured By Owner Jan 31, 2013  Student Digital Artist
i noticed another thing, the focus seems jumping even out of photoshop. an open image got the focus after hitting the hud hotkey three times.
spania Featured By Owner Jan 15, 2013
anybody knows of a similar fix for Illustrator? or whether this works for it? I only want to disable the ALT menu calling, Got Illustrator CS6 and I dont wanna risk to screw it up.

BTW works porfectly with PS CS6 disabling the ALT menu call.
shoaz Featured By Owner Jan 9, 2013
I was searching for a solution to disable the Alt menu, a poison in my shortcut habits (alt+scroll to zoom and... menu :( ).
Thx a lot.
