I use mathematica for typing Physics and other notes. For important equations, I prefer to put a box around them. To do so I use either:

  • Insert-> Typesetting -> Add Frame from the menubar
  • Palette -> Writing Assistant -> Writing and Formatting -> Cell Properties -> Frame

This is tedious when you are rapidly taking notes. I desire to be able to assign the command(s) to a shortcut key. Is there a function or command that I could assign to a shortcut key?

There is already a keyboard short-cut to a add a frame:

Select any expression or cell breacket, use Alt+i then hit t and m:

This works on Windows. On Mac, use Option instead of Alt.

Note: The documentation page Insert >> Typesetting does not mention this shortcut. There is also no indication of this keyboard shortcut in the Insert menu and Typesetting submenu:
