How to get Illustrator export into shortcut?

I am an avid InDesign user and a big fan of shortcuts. In InDesign you can use the shortcut cmd+E to export items within InDesign but this feature is not a default in Illustrator. How can I add the export shortcut to Illustrator?

Answer

You can do this in Illustrator by navigating to Edit -> Keyboard Shortcuts:

You will get the Keyboard Shortcuts panel:

The default view is for Tools so you will need to click the drop down and select Menu Commands:

Once in menu commands you click the carat for File and navigate to Export:

Click within the Shortcut till it highlights orange and then click cmd+E and it will show up:

You will be prompted that cmd+E is over-riding the GPU preview command but I never use it so that is up to you. Once you click OK you will be requested to give the keyset file a name, I called mine export_shortcut:

Press OK and have fun with your enhanced workflow.
