Please give us a keyboard shortcut for "scale strokes & effects"...
and show an icon somewhere in the user interface, that is always visible and shows the state of this preference.
Very much needed
Stephen is right with the workaround, but I say this here and there: an action which has only one operation recorded is a bad action, a consequence of Illustrator’s inability to assign direct hotkeys to panels’ menus.
I believe every command in Ai should be assignable to a hotkey.

You can use the Action panel to record two actions - one turning it on and the other turning it off via the Transform Panel (click the 3 lines and tick it on or off). You can assign whatever keys you like to enable or disable Scale Strokes & Effects. I turn it on with F9 and turn it off with F10.

I can's believe Adobe can't handle basic usability things like this.
( or actually I can, I have learned what to expect from Adobe)
IMO Every command, tool and action should be bindable to any key without restrictions.
(sorry about tone.... I have had very hard time Illustrator today)

Yes please. I'm constantly toggling this and navigating through preferences each time really slows things down.
I totally agree with this...it's needed. I use it all the time and can't believe there's no shortcut or button to help speed up the process!!
Come on Adobe...sort it out!! Please... :-)
