Hi Dave

I am in a bit of a hurry now, but tin the GIMP there are 2 ways of 
assigining shortcuts to any desired action

Please, click in <Toolbox>->File->Prefrences and interface and read 
the instructions on "Dynamic Keyboard shortcuts"  or just go from 
there to a shortcut assignment interface.

Also, you should consider makig a script - either in script-fu or 
gium-fu to repeat this sequence - it is actually easy, if you see 
some ofthe .py and .scm files taht come with the GIMP, and check the 
Procedure Database in <Toolbox>->Xtns->PDB Browser
