Keyboard shortcuts for all Pathfinder options (Unite, Divide, Trim, etc)
I work quickly and would like custom shortcuts for all the Pathfinder options.
you can use cmd/ctrl + 4 for pathfinder shortcut but it can only record the last pathfinder step you just used. hope it helps. I hope adobe will release better keyboard shortcuts for pathfinder. but for now that cmd+4 helps me a lot.

I agree - being able to assign keyboard shortcuts to unite in particular would be most helpful!!!
@Griff Since Adobe seems to be letting us down here: Please post your workaround - I haven't found out how to do this with macros. :(
Corel Draw has a shortcut layout for 95% of the buttons/functions and there is no, never limitation on special system keys.
But Adobe !

You mean, "ludicrous" right? Hehe

I use this a lot, I am using actions as a shortcut, but it is better to have it as a shortcut

Please add this new function it would be AWESOME since I use Pathfinder a lot, mostly Unite.

I cannot hide my alignment window because there are two buttons that cannot receive shortcuts, I cannot hide the path finder window because I need to join objects, and the properties window is mandatory to define measures, that is, there are three windows to click but only one of them it has text boxes for measurements and it really is mandatory.
Basically make it so pathfinder tools like Unite, Divide, Minus Front can be assigned to keyboard shortcuts in the keyboard shortcut editor. its ludacris (not the rapper) that you cant do this.
pls add the ability to add hotkey for the pathfinder
also pls add a function to clean up shapes, when using the pathfinder there are often empty path or points inside wich cause problems in further work...
astute has made some good plugins for it but i think this should be integrated!
I agree with this. Pathfinder items are only available on the panels, so I've had to resort to macros to activate them with shortcuts.
