You won't be able to change fixed keyboard shortcuts in Painter to make them match Photoshop's.

You can, however, program the F and Shift+F keys to do things.

Don't worry, you'll soon get used to switching from one program to another. It can be done with a little time and a lot of practice.

Most programs are different from each other in many ways and it shouldn't be too much of a surprise to find Photoshop and Painter different. They weren't even created by the same company.

I think people who use both programs are lucky they are as similar as they are, considering their focus is not the same.. Photoshop for photo manipulation.. Painter for art.

Good luck.
