Chapter in this post:
I've been testing the Logitech Craft wireless keyboard for you for a few days. First of all: The thing is pretty nice and the review will be relatively long because the keyboard offers a lot of possibilities and I would like to introduce them. But where there is light, there is also shadow and that is what this guide is about. Logitech keyboards and mice are configured using Logi Options software.
With the Logitech Craft keyboard, for example, you can use it to set which actions are triggered by the rotary knob and the function keys on the keyboard - and you can even make these settings on the basis of individual apps, if you want.
In my case, I probably overdid it with the configuration, because at some point the wheel in Adobe Photoshop no longer worked as it should. I then restarted Photoshop, restarted the Mac, reset the keyboard settings in the Logitech Options software and even installed the software myself over it. Unfortunately, all actions were unsuccessful.
My last option was to uninstall the Logitech software and then reinstall it. However, there is no way to do this in the software itself. The Options software is in the Applications folder and there was no uninstall app to be found either.
Ultimately, the solution is easier than expected, but Logitech made it kind of complicated because instead of putting the uninstall tool in the Applications folder, they hid it in the Utilities folder.
To fix my problem, I started the "Uninstaller for Logi Options" tool (and of course closed the "Logi Options" app beforehand) and uninstalled everything. Next, I ran the installer again and then ended up in the configuration of my Logitech Craft. After I logged into my Logitech account here, the functions of the rotary wheel were also back to normal in Photoshop, as they should be.
You can see again that most problems - also on the Mac - with Switch off and on or uninstalling and reinstalling are to be resolved.
