I'm using the latest Windows version of Acrobat and I use the "Add text comment" (Typewriter) tool a lot (not the Text box" tool).  I've looked at the Acrobat shortcuts Web page and cannot find a shortcut for it.  Can someone please tell me what it is?  Thanks 🙂

Thank all of you for your input.  However, what I had hoped for was a definitive answer that simply provided the shortcut or stated that there was no shortcut for this tool.

I know this is an old thread, but I sure wish this shortcut was availabe. Like the OP, I use "Add Text" all the time. Yes, I had already added it to my toolbar - but I am so often coming from another Adobe product - Illustrator or Photoshop - and without thinking will hit the T for text and, unfortunately, that opens the Edit Text tool. Frustrating
