    I think to compete with Sketch. Don't know about the rest of the shortcuts, but they likely adopted the shortcuts from Sketch to make the switch easy as hell for a former sketch-user.

      The funny thing is, the former-sketch user, was likely a former Adobe user at some point.

      The main hurdle keeping me from fully adopting Sketch was frustration relearning shortcuts I use everyday in Illustrator at my 9-5.

      But if I have to relearn how to work anyways, I have less incentive to stay in the Adobe ecosystem. And Sketch has shown to have an active plugin industry, with outside developers bringing a lot of useful plugins on a much quicker timeline than Adobe historically has.
