    The most recent version finally has the Object > Distribute menu added.

    Now both Align and Distribute commands can be accessed via menu and have assigned keyboards shortcuts to them.

    The order of the commands though seemingly matches the one the panel has: horizontal first for Align and vertical first for Distribute. If you find this odd and want to change it — vote here:

    Also, Align To and Distribute Spacing commands are still missing in top menus, so please keep voting here to make them added too.

    I found out that I can assign shortcuts using Edit > Keyboard Shortcuts, however the shortcuts should consist a Ctrl (Cmd) to be validated and no arrow keys are allowed! I also use Adobe XD and they have done a great job on alignment shortcuts and how alignment works itself. It would be amazing to have that implemented in AI as well.

    They use following mapping which is very handy:
    Align left: Ctrl + Shift + ←
    Align Right: Ctrl + Shift + →
    Align Top: Ctrl + Shift + ↑
    Align Bottom: Ctrl + Shift + ↓

    Align Center Horizontally: Shift + C
    Align Center Vertically: Shift + M

    Distribute Horizontally: Ctrl + Shift + H
    Distribute Vertically: Ctrl + Shift + V
