A fill holes and a flip norms hotkey would also be convenient.

Fill Holes is Shift+j, Flip Normals is Shift+x. These and other hotkeys are obviously displayed in the same menus and in the status bar if you have tooltips turned on. I've always wondered why there wasn't an add edge hotkey, considering that it's one of the most used modeling tools.

I'm curious.How would it work since you have to give the start and
the end point ?

It would trigger just like any other tool. Press the hotkey and it's like clicking the button:

Just like press `m` triggers or `d` triggers

OK I get it.It's only to select the tool,not actually add an edge.
Thanks.

Yes an add edge shortcut would be really helpful. I use it alot too and always clicking the button something gets on my nerves ;)


Flip Normals is Shift+x.

Shift+x is fix normals ;), flip normals is shift+n
