You can browse through the available keyboard shortcuts yourself (Opt-Cmd-K on Mac), but I didn't see it when I looked. Does grabbing the mouse and clicking really slow you down that much John Heiser

As useful as Essential Graphics is, it's still not as developed as we all hope it will eventually be. Short of drawing it with the pen tool (totally hit-and-miss), you're probably destined to take it
