Is there any shortcut to add arrowheads to a stroke both ends at once?

It would be so useful to be able to add whatever symbol in just one action rather than have to add to each end separately. Or is there a script maybe?

Surprisingly, we have no access to arrowheads via the scripting API, so no help there.

Another option is to make an Action—I tried it just now and seemed to work pretty well, although it also sets a few other stroke-related values at the same time.

If you always need the same arrowheads, consider creating a graphic styles that you put into all your templates and new document profiles

Thank you Monica. That's one possibility I suppose. To be able to hold down the Option key (Mac) and click once would be great though.
