Shortcut for new layer and assign selected objects to that layer?

in my current workflow I create some new geometry , then I select it. I then goto layers and create a new layer. then I select the new layer and right click to change object layer.

is there a quicker way?

I have this:

! -_ChangeLayer _Pause _NewLayer

If geometry is selected, it will prompt you for a new layer name and then change the selected geometry to that layer.

I also have this if you want to move a copy of selected geometry to a new layer:

! -_CopyToLayer _NewLayer

yes! do you have that stored as a short cut or a new command somewhere?

I set it up as the right click on the ChangeLayer toolbar button.

thank you
