How to Find Keyboard Shortcuts for Your Painter Version

In another thread, someone suggested posting keyboard shortcuts for Painter. Though it might be nice to do that, it would be kind of silly and redundant, to say nothing of being a waste of time, to post the Painter keyboard shortcuts because anyone who has Painter already has them. Here's where to look for keyboard shortcuts in your Painter version:

Painter IX Help > Help Topics > Contents tab > Keyboard Shortcuts - Using Edit > Preferences > Customize Keys, the user can customize keyboard shortcuts however they like using the F keys, Shift+F keys, and other single keys and key combinations.

Painter 8 > Help > Help Topics > Contents tab > Keyboard Shortcuts - Using Edit > Preferences > Customize Keys, the user can customize the F and Shift+F keys however they like.

Painter 7 > Help > Help Topics > Painter 7 Help > Keyboard Shortcuts - Using Edit > Preferences > Function Keys, the user can customize the F and Shift+F keys however they like.

Painter 6 > Help > Keyboard Shortcuts- Using Edit > Preferences > Function Keys, the user can customize the F and Shift+F keys however they like.

Painter 5 > Help > Keyboard- Using Edit > Preferences > Function Keys, the user can customize the F and Shift+F keys however they like.

Metacreations Painter Classic 1: Available Keyboard Shortcuts are listed in the main menus to the right of the menu commands.

procreate Painter Classic 2: Available Keyboard Shortcuts are listed in the main menus to the right of the menu commands.

The only things I don't find in either version of Painter Classic are lists of letter keys to activate tools in the Tools palettes. Though anyone to takes the time can find these keys easily just by clicking each key and watching to see which tool icon is activated, I'll post them here. Please make a copy of this message so we don't have to do this again.
