I'm looking for a simple Illustrator shortcut to select the next/previous layer in the layer's panel for OSX. According to this post, + [ or + ] should cycle through the layers, but this seems to no longer work in Illustrator CC.

  • Thanks @Luciano, I had already taken a look at that page before but it does not contain any reference to a shortcut like that. Unless you're seeing something that I'm not?
