Keyboard Shortcut to select locked objects
When needing to move a locked object, you currently only have the option of "unlock ALL" whereas sometimes you may have many things locked that you do not want unlocked - only one or two things you want to move.
It would be helpful if by holding a button (Say Alt or control) this would allow you to select locked objects, move or alter the object, and once you deselect it continues to be locked.
In latest versions you can enable 'Select and Unlock objects on canvas' option in Preferences > Selection & Anchor Display section.
This adds small lock icons for each locked object you can toggle right there without the need to unlock everything first.
This is not exactly the solution you asked for, no hotkeys involved (and there are no modifiers left to allow this), but it does the job.
Does it work for you? Please leave a comment.
Please Adobe, Please make this happen!

Yes I share absolutely same idea. Is there any solution that we do not know?
This would be so VERY HELPFUL. Sometimes I cannot figure out what layer an object is in because it is locked, so I can't choose "Locate Object" either. It's very counter productive to spend time going through sometimes hundreds of objects and layers trying to find that one stray mark I'm trying to change or get rid of. Thanks!
