Nice! I didn’t realize you could do that.

You have some good ones, I just added shortcuts for inlet and outlet, but went with ‘I’ and ‘O’
I use a few shortcuts for my own objects (R is ajm.ruby). And I use print a lot, so I think this is useful:
max definecommand T patcher insertobj print;
I was using ‘P’ for print, but around the 5.0.2 update C74 made that a shortcut for creating an object in presentation mode.
Note you can have separate shortcuts for lowercase and uppercase letters. It seems if only one or the other is defined, then typing that letter in either case will work. For example, I can type ‘o’ or ‘O’ for outlet, but ‘i’ is int and ‘I’ is inlet. Guess it all depends on whether you mind hitting the shift key. I try to make all my shortcuts uppercase to keep them out of the way of C74, but then they added ‘P’…
