PowerPoint 2016 for Mac finally includes the new-style equation editor (which was already available in Word for Mac and PowerPoint for Windows). An equation can be inserted using a ribbon button (Insert → Insert Equation).
How can I add a keyboard shortcut for this? Is there already a keyboard shortcut for it?
For Word I could use the OS settings from System Preferences → Keyboard and set up a shortcut for the menu item named "Equation". But I cannot find a corresponding menu item in PowerPoint. I can only find this feature on the ribbon, but not the in menu. Is there any way to set up a keyboard shortcut for it?
The shortcut posted by theoden seems to be broken in new versions.
As a workaround one can just go to the System Preferences => Keyboard => Shortcuts => App Shortcuts and add another one for Microsoft PowerPoint with the "Equation" as Menu Title.
