Could we have some Children Selector Shortcuts?

Hi there!
Could we possibly get some Children Selector Shortcuts to streamline repetitive operations when you need to adjust parameters of specific Children inside similar structured assets (whether they be normal Frames, Auto Layouts or Components and Variants of these)? :bowing_man:t3:

For instance, selecting multiple Frames, followed by pressing Enter, bring your selection inside the Parent Frame and selects all Children inside. Could we then have a Keyboard Shortcut that would allow in a single action to select only the Second Child of all Parent Frames involved?

I don’t specifically mind which Combination Keys:

  • Tab
  • +1, +2, +3, etc. (CTRL+1, CTRL+2, CTRL+3, etc.)
  • ⇧++1, ⇧++2, ⇧++3, etc. (SHFT+CTRL+1, SHFT+CTRL+2, SHFT+CTRL+3, etc.)
  • ⌥++1, ⌥++2, ⌥++3, etc. (ALT+CTRL+1, ALT+CTRL+2, ALT+CTRL+3, etc.)
  • anything else goes…

This simple thing would fast-forward operational process sooooo much… My mind is already blowing in the expectation. Thanks for your consideration.
