I have added several dirs as bookmarks to nautilus and I want to know if there a way to assign keyboard shortcuts to some of them.

Do you want to navigate to the bookmark while being within nautilus or do you want to open nautilus at the specific location when you use a keyboard shortcut? – Marcel Stimberg Sep 16 '10 at 19:16
@MarcelStimberg Since the answer(s) below wasn't accepted, I assume Bauna was after the former: within Nautilus. There's a v similar / related question open here, suggestions and answers most welcome!! – nutty about natty Apr 25 '13 at 7:03

You can go into Keyboard Shortcuts and create a new "custom shortcut" as "nautilus ~/Documents".

The ~ didn't work when I tried this on my Fedora 14 system. I had to specify the full path "/home/.../Documents". – slm Feb 3 '12 at 16:37

Well, your bookmarks can be found in the file ~/.gtk-bookmarks so you could hack something together but there is no built-in way (according to docs etc)
