Purge All shortcut in CS5 using a MacBook Pro/laptop keyboard with no numeric keypad?
on Apr 29, 2013 at 12:43:58 pm

HI all,

As the subject says, I'm looking for the CS5 keyboard shortcut for Purge All under the Edit menu, on non-numeric keypad machines (e.g. MacBook Pro). Any have any clue? I checked the Adobe help page but they only have numeric keypad instructions:
http://help.adobe.com/en_US/aftereffects/cs/using/WSCEBCDB03-0A9C-459e-873E...

I installed the KeyedUp script but it doesn't seem to have Purge All as an option? Let me know if I'm missing it.

I even checked the official alternate keyboard shortcuts info page and they do not have Purge All listed:

If anyone could help me out on how to do this it would be much appreciated.

Thanks!

Are you really purging all of your caches so often that you need to use a keyboard shortcut for it? If so, that is a sign of a rather serious problem.

Indeed I am. No serious problem, but I work on the road a lot, so I'm stuck with my maxed out 8GB of ram in my MacBook Pro. I do frequent RAM previews which eat up a ton of memory, so I purge after every few previews. Make sense?

It sounds like what you want to purge is just the image caches, not use the broader "All" command. You are throwing away the baby with the bathwater.

That could work too - is there a shortcut for that on a non-numeric keypad laptop keyboard?

Nope. No shortcut for that at all.

If you want a shortcut for that, please make a feature request:

Thanks for confirming. I made the feature request. I should probably ask Jeff Almasol to add it to the KeyedUp script as well.
