Shortcut for 'Add Note to Text'
A shortcut – ideally a keyboard shortcut – for 'Add Note to Text' would be very helpful for the editors and proofreaders among us. To select the text, right-click and find 'Add Note to Text' is cumbersome when you're using that particular feature more than any other (the Sticky Note is much maligned by designers and reviewers alike for not being specific enough to the text to which it relates).
It would also make lots more sense in the context of the comment-as-you-type functionality for inserting or deleting text, etc. Surely it would be logical to create an equivalent keyboard-centred shortcut for 'Add Note to Text' to save constant switching between keyboard and mouse clicking for markup?
A perfect solution would be Ctrl + Alt + M, which mirrors MS Word's shortcut (and effectively gives you the same function). And given it's likely to be used a lot by editors who are also using that shortcut in Word, it would feel natural to many. In terms of Adobe products, it would only cut across the shortcut in Illustrator for inserting a thin space, which doesn't seem a massive issue.
If not a keyboard shortcut, then at the very least a different Quick Tool button on the Quick Tool Bar (or even the nice new Quick Tool palette that hovers above text when you select it).
Wholeheartedly agree with the above comment.
For users who chiefly leverage the "Add note to text" feature, it is tempting to convert a given ".pdf" to ".docx" in order to leverage Microsoft Word's "Ctrl+Alt+M" feature. Please create a keyboard shortcut for the "Add Note to Text" feature.
