shift+command+b not working for bold

Jan 31, 2013 10:08 AM

I just updated to cs6 and my "bold" key command is not working. (shift+command+b on mac) I am using a font that has BOLD. I can select bold from the character palette and it works fine but the key command will not work. I checked my key command list and is there by default. It should work. It worked fine on cs5 for me. I even tried holding the fn key but no dice. Any ideas? I have to bold many many items so I can not possibly use the character palette....thanks.

    Did you try to copy a custome keyboard shorcut set from an earlier version of ID?

    I didn't ask what was assigned, I asked if you copied a custom set from an earlier version, and I don't know from your answer if you did or did not.

    Actually what happens with the Cmd+Shift+B or Ctrl+Shift+B shortcut depends entirely on the particular font you have. It does not always work as you expect as this article points out:
