I see frequently questions similar to "What's the shortcut for this in X" or How to add shortcut key in Illustrator. A lot of times it's either Illustrator / Photoshop / Indesign, and it's always the same way (search it in "Edit > Keyboard shortcuts" and if yours doesn't exist, add it there).

I don't think the site should be a place to ask for the same basic software operation questions all the time, once should be enough! Don't get me wrong, I use shortcuts all the time and I love it, but whenever I need to find one I'd rather find a list of shortcuts than come here, ask for it, wait for an answer.

Should we have one general question + answer and just close the others / point to it? Something like

Q: Where are the shortcuts for Photoshop/Illustrator/Indesign?

A: Search for it in here, here or here. If you don't find a default shortcut for your tool, create one in the menu "Edit > Keyboard shortcuts".

Perhaps with a link to the Adobe Default shortcuts (for example, for Illustrator)

Can we have a canonical "Adobe shortcuts" question?
