create artboard from selection hotkey?

Recommended Posts

There is no option within Keyboard Shortcuts, the only option is to be able to assign a shortcut to launch the Artboard Tool.

The app's preferences has a keyboard section where you can assign a shortcut for Draw persona's Layer > Convert Object to Artboard as shown below:

I think that's a different option than the insert artboard from selection function, because doing that will only allow me to create an artboard from a single, ungrouped object.

I am not sure about this option, but as long as the feature you are looking for is in a menu from the menu bar, you can set a hotkey for any option at all. In the screenshot Mike provided, the first dropdown menu is of the personas and the second is of the menus. All options under the menus are listed.


The website is still a work in progress. The "Comics" and "Shop" sections are not yet ready. Feel free to connect with me and let me know what you like or what can be improved. You can contact me here, on my contact page, YouTube channel, or Twitter account. Thanks and have a great day!
