I'm guessing there's no way to do this but I thought I'd ask to find out for sure...

Once I enter and the attached orders execute, (e.g. take profit and stop order bracket)

is there a way to convert the stop order to a trailing one by custom keyboard shortcut or context menu or somehow?

I mean I know you can set it up to be a trailing stop from the get-go but I'm thinking if you're manually trading and decide you want to start trailing

You would have to close out the previous Stop and then you can attach a new Stop order using the Trading Order type of Send Attached Orders. Refer to the following:
