I'd like to be able to set a hotkey that enters edit mode for the currently selected symbol. I checked in the shortcuts menu but couldn't see it there. Is it possible to create a shortcut for the Edit Symbol command?
From my experience you cannot create a shortcut for the edit symbol. You can view the symbols in the
Symbols Panel by going to
Window > Symbol and double clicking on any symbol there to edit:
You could always review the Adobe's documentation for scripting and see if you could develop a workaround.
