The Hot Keys or shortcuts I use

When learning a new digital software like corel painter essentials 3, Photoshop, or Corel Painter IX, there are always a ton of buttons 
to press in order to perform simple tasks.
And if you have to press all these buttons, and go into long menues everytime, you will work very slow. So its a good idea to try to have a good workflow, with the use of some shortcuts & hot keys wich I like to call them. The hot keys im about to give you, are those that I use most often in Corel Painter. And many of them can also be used in similar software like for instance Adobe Photoshop, so I will tell you if you can use the hotkeys in that program aswell. Where I dont mention Photoshop the hotkeys are different in that program, and I wont bother to say what it really is. Because you should focus on the best program of the two (painter ofcourse).
Lets get to it shall we, these are my favorite hotkeys:

1. CTRL + Z = UNDO (Same in Photoshop)
2. CTRL + Y = REDO
3.  B = BRUSH TOOL (Same in Photoshop)
4. CTRL + F = FILL
5. E = ROTATE CANVAS
6. CTRL + / = USE LAST USED FILTER
7. ALT GR + ] = INCREASE BRUSH SIZE
8. ALT GR + [ = DECREASE BRUSH SIZE
9. SPACE + LEFT MOUSE CLICK AND DRAG = PANNING AROUND
10. CTRL + = ZOOM IN (Same in Photoshop)
11. CTRL - = ZOOM OUT (Same in Photoshop)
12 D = EYEDROPPER TOOL
13. T = TEXT TOOL ( Same in Photoshop)
14. CTRL + A = MARK ENTIRE CANVAS (Same in Photoshop)
15. CTRL + C = COPY MARKED SELECTION (Same in Photoshop)
16. CTRL + V = PASTE SELECTION (Same in Photoshop)

There you have it folks, my most used hotkeys. I know there are plenty more that is probably useful, but anyway those are the hotkeys im using.

close to true. Undo in photoshop = Ctrl-Alt-Z redo = Ctrl-shift-Y. if you want to undo/redo more as once. This is almost every time the case.
Thx for the other shortcuts im new to corel painter

7. ALT GR + ] = INCREASE BRUSH SIZE
8. ALT GR + [ = DECREASE BRUSH SIZE

It doesn't work in Painter XI. Or maybe i do something wrong?
