Where can I access the "Shapes" Tool keyboard shortcut?

Recommended Posts

I've been able to change the shortcut for the Rectangle, Ellipse, and Rounded-Rectangle Tools, but I don't see a listing for the Tool that includes the rest of the shapes (triangle, arrow, etc.). I noticed that, when hovering over that tool before I changed things, the "Shapes" Tool displayed the M shortcut--same as the Rectangle Tool. After changing the Rectangle to R, no shortcut is listed on the Shapes Tool, so it must have been "removed" somewhere.

 

Does anyone know how to access the shortcut entry field for it? I couldn't find anything related under the Draw/Tools list in the Keyboard Shortcuts section of Preferences.

There is no keyboard shortcut for the shapes in the retail version, nor any way to assign one that I am aware of. You can test this for yourself by first saving your shortcuts, then clicking Reset in the Keyboard shortcuts preference. Open a document & hover the pointer over the tool icon -- there won't be an M for any of them. When finished checking this, reload your saved keyboard shortcuts.
