    +1 for more double tap keys...

    To Tim's point about modifiers being exhausted... The visual shortcut customizer was a welcome addition to my personal workflow, however I also found the same problem the Ae team is having. Most modifiers are already used. I found myself wanting access to add custom quick double-letter shortcuts.

    In this case for drag and duplicate, a unique/new hold on second keypress might work. So' Alt' then hold a quick second 'Alt' in succession + drag would active the duplication.

    More broadly though it seems to be the problem of keyboard UI. I've seen iPad and scripts used to add extra keys. Wacom keys. Color grading as a practice has its own keyboard. Or C4D's submenus, opening up various combinations of quick keypresses as shortcuts... Not sure what's best but I feel like as more great feature are added to Ae, we'll be wanting more shortcuts, which are in short supply.

    Update: Smart quotes (curly?) do not cause the error.

    Thanks Tim!

    Update: The JSON escape character is \ (backslash). Interestingly, \\ works as it should, where After Effects parses this resulting in \ (single backslash). However, \" still returns the error above. After a lot of testing, \u0022 returns the desired " (quotation mark).

    Tried a little bit with a CSV file as well. One of the big problems is that when Excel sees any text values with quotations, it wraps the whole cell value in quotes, which is normal for CSV standards.

    It seems that After Effects is trying to parse any text file (CSV or TSV) as JSON. Would you please change this so After Effects uses the CSV and TSV standards instead? Thanks!
