ArcMap 10.2 Create Features shortcut

Hi, I am using a gdb with a vast amount of features for digitising. There are certain polylines points and polygons I use more often than others. Is there any way I can have a shortcut to these features on my keyboard. For example,  I have a building point and a shed point, is it possible to click B on my keyboard for building or S on my keyboard for shed? I find it a slow process continually selecting these features manually by mouse. Is there some type of keypad available to select features by button instead of scrolling and clicking? The only work around I have found so far is to use autohotkey and record the absolute coordinate of the feature I want to select and map this to a button on my keyboard. It has its pros and cons but ultimately not ideal. I use several shortcuts to speed up the editing process but I'm looking to improve efficiency in data capture.  arcmap 10.2
