When I am creating sprite sheets I am using guides a lot to separate the different parts of the image visually. Unfortunately there is no predefined keyboard shortcut for adding a new guide (View > Guides > Add Guide). How can I define a keyboard shortcut for this or any other action?

Thanks for your help,

Hey Chris, apologies for the super late reply! You can create custom keyboard shortcuts using the steps outlined in this tutorial: ... shortcuts/

And, if the rulers are visible, you can also double-click a ruler to bring up the Add Guide sheet. Or you can also drag out guides from rulers. I quite like both these methods for quickly adding guides!

thank you for your advice. I did not know that you can set custom keyboard shortcuts for any application in Keyboard Preferences. That is very helpful.
