Is there a shortcut key for converting selected anchor points to smooth? If not, is there a way to set one?

I've looked in the keyboard shortcuts menu, but I can not see an option. Do i have to always click on the button to convert?

    alt + drag with the Pen Tool selected or the Convert Anchor Point Tool (shift + c)

As far as I can tell there is no way to set a keyboard shortcut to do this.

You can do this with the Pen Tool (P) by selecting the point and Alt + drag

or the Convert Anchor Point Tool (SHIFT + C) by selecting the point and drag


You can shift-select multiple points using direct selection tool, and then click convert anchor points button just once.
