basic hotkeys question

In my search to hotkey the world I am wondering if anyone has figured out a clever way to:

- hotkey a particular EQ effect inside the EQ menu

- hotkey switching between Waveform and Waveform DB in the timeline?

TIA!

You can see what Audacity shortcuts are available if you open Keyboard Preferences.

If the track has the yellow focus border, SHIFT + M then V to change to Waveform. Use UP or DOWN arrow if the track does not have the yellow focus border.

Presumably you already use AutoHotkey or similar? You would want that for a one step shortcut to choose a preset EQ curve.
