Renaming Layer Shortcut Keys!
Hello there Illustrator Devs!.
I just wanted to ask about a very simple feature but until today it hasn't been added to the Illustrator App
can you add a shortcut to rename a layer?. it is important for motion graphic artists to rename all the layers so it will be clear which layer for each object in after effects.
double-clicking is ok but it seems to be more efficient if I can bind some hotkeys to rename layers because using hotkeys or shortcuts just requires one hand only rather than using a mouse.
I will appreciate it if you consider my suggestion for the next update. Thank you very much!.
At the moment we have a bunch of scripts community had to write to cover this gap... we have to install a script into the folder and then record a one-command action to call for the script, which is absurd, since an action with only one command within is just a band-aid.
My favorite one is this:
It can do something more — rename layers and objects, and allows to replace as well.

I second this.
Yes, we need that.
Meanwhile you can assign a shortcut to this script: https://translate.google.com/translate?sl=ru&tl=en&u=ais.sergosokin.ru/item/renameitems/
