I constantly use the pathfinder tool and I began to wonder, is there any shortcut for this? specially for the "add shapes" function.

enter image description here


Illustrator does not have a default shortcut for a specific Pathfinder function. Illustrator only has a shortcut to open the Pathfinder Window.

A workaround would be to a create an action for the Pathfinder functions you use the most. Then apply a F-Key to the action.

You can also repeat a Pathfinder function by pressing CMD/CTRL + 4

  • I find it amazing how much of the functionality of the software is not accessible from the keyboard layout tool
