Effects and Presets Hotkey
I would love the ability to be able to type a quick hotkey and search to dial up any effect or preset that I have saved. Similar to Shift C in C4D or FX Console by Video Copilot. Adding a hotkey to bring up a context menu isn't that hard right?

This would be great! The functionality is 99% there, we just need a shortcut key for it and a way to select the effect from the search using keyboard.
The interaction would be something like this:
> Press shortcut to open search box in the Effects & Presets panel
>Type a name of an effect
>Press enter, if the effect is first on the list of results, to apply to selected layers
>> Alternatively, if the desired effect is not the first on the list of results, use keyboard arrow keys to move to the result and then press enter to apply to selected layers.
