You can define custom shortcuts for any command in the command line, all the way down to setting specific tags or field values. To trigger shortcut recording, open the command line, find the command you want to set a shortcut for, and hit Cmd/Ctrl+Shift+K. This opens a popup where you can input a new shortcut. All shortcuts are saved in your Settings > Preferences > Private keyboard shortcuts, with the bottom ones being most recent.
