Where is the “Save All” option in InDesign?

I’ve often wondered why there is no “Save All” option in the file menu in InDesign. Many InDesigners often have multiple documents open simultaneously.

Today as I was indexing a book with 15 chapters I finally decided to do a quick search and found that while InDesign lacks the menu item, it has the keyboard shortcut!

Press CMD+Option+Shift+S (Mac) or CTRL+ALT+Shift+S (Win) to save all open documents simultaneously.

So now I’m mystified as to why the developers bothered to put in the keyboard shortcut if they didn’t intend to put in the menu item? And if it’s not a menu item, how can we customize the keyboard shortcut? And can it please be  a menu item in the future?

    Even stranger: if you go to Edit: Keyboard Shortcuts, it’s not listed in there under the file menu or any where else I could find. So it’s an unlisted, secret keyboard shortcut.
