Hi Paco,

Thanks for reaching out. If I am not wrong, you are looking for a shortcut that can help you locate the objects in the layers panel? If yes, I am afraid that Illustrator doesn't give you that option directly from Illustrator's Keyboard Shortcut panel.

There might be a possible solution through scripting hence I am moving this discussion to Illustrator Scripting​ community so that you can get some replies from our scripting experts.

Regards,

Srishti

Did you use "Insert Menu Item" to create the Action?

Thanks for your response. I found out what you meant for Insert Menu Item and searched for Locate Object online to see where it was on the menu. I only had used the serach magnifying glass at the bottom of the layer panel. Got it to work know. Thaks for the clue.
