    Hi Jørgen Lock-Andersen,

    At this time, all shortcuts work with English keyboard layout only. However, I will pass your feedback on to our developers.

    Thank you Helena

    May I suggest a very simple solution to the problem that probably also exist with other non-english keyboards: add a slider to adjust brush softness.

    Hi Jørgen,

    The sliders for the brush are available in the Dodge&Burn tool: https://prnt.sc/10885ai

    The Strength slider will help you adjust the softness. Use the Overall Amount slider to further refine the global intensity of the tool and blend it back with the original image.

    Hello Margaret 

    I don't think that you have understood what I mean. Brush Softness is the transition zone between the center of the brush area and the periphery and this defines the area between the full effect of the brush in the center and out to where there is no effect of the brush. In this area there is a gradual diminishing of the brush effect and this is desirable in most situations in photo editing as opposed to a hard transition from full effekt to no effect . 

    The sliders Strength and Overall Amount do not regulate the size of transition zone and hence do not have any influence on brush softness. 

    Jim Nix has a recently video, which nicely demonstrates the function Brush Softness and the influence and use of this. "Luminar AI Deep Dive: Dodge and Burn". Here is the link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FGqqnA8lw4o
