I use Remove Selected Local Overrides a lot, but each use requires fine mouse movements and at least four clicks.

Remove Selected Local Overrides is buried

I've tried speeding this up by using Quick Apply and custom keyboard shortcuts, but this action doesn't appear in either menu. It's not where it should be in Edit > Menus…, and its entire submenu appears to be missing from Quick Apply.

Remove Selected Local Overrides doesn't appear in menu customization

I suspect the problem may have something to do with Remove Selected Local Overrides transforming into Remove All Local Overrides when there's not an applicable object selected.

How can I Remove Selected Local Overrides with fewer clicks—and ideally the keyboard only?

Remove Selected Local Overrides is available in Quick Apply (⌘⎵), but you need to Show Hidden Keyboard Commands in the Quick Apply options, which isn't toggled on by default.

Click on the downward triangle ▼ to reveal Quick Apply options. Voila!

Quick Apply has Remove Selected Local Overrides

You may need to be careful of how you spell “Remove Selected Local Overrides”; it didn't work for me after the first few tries. And I have no idea how Adobe came to their definition of “hidden”.
