Have updated to Aperture 3.5 now that I took the free carrot of Mavericks.


One thing I have noticed is that the "P" shortcut does not seem to work any more - is this right ?


Occaisionally I look at an image in full screen and it is in Preview mode but most of the time it is ready to work on - anyone else with this issue ?


As an aside - is Lightroom having any memory problems with Mavericks ?

    That shortcut works for me using 3.5 with Mavericks. The Edit options are dimmed out. Try trashing your Aperture.plist and log out/in and see if it fixes the issue.

    The new Aperture version handles previews differently. You do not actually need to create previews to share your images to native Apple applications, like iLife and iWork applications.

    See this discussion Major change to previews in 3.5? 

    and this support article: http://support.apple.com/kb/HT5932


    But still, "Quick Preview" does disable the adjustment pane, at least for me- like firstlaunch said.

    Are you sure, that you are in "Quick Preview" mode? Is the "hurried square" icon highlighted in yellow?

    Maybe simply your "P" shortcut has become disabled. Does the "Quick preview" menu entry in the "View" menu still show the shortcut "P" or is it gone?

    If not, fix the shortcut from the Aperture > Commands > Shortcuts menu.

    If the shortcut is still o.k., and you are in Quick Preview mode, test this issue in a different user account, before trashing your preferences, like first launch suggests.
