Wanted: List of available shortcut keys

Nov 11, 2011 3:50 PM

When I define a new style, I am given an opportunity to specify a shortcut keystroke to be used to invoke it. I doubt anyone alive knows all the pre-defined shortcuts and I'd hate to mess up something I might need to use in the future. It would be helpful if instead of a blank box, we were given a combo box with a drop down list of available unused shortcut key combineations while still retaining the ability to just type one in for those who like the current system. Thank you.

    Not a problem. Style shorcuts are restricted to using one of the modifier keys and a Numberpad number key, and those keys are reserved for styles.

    Fun: For what it's worth, when assigning keys to other functions, (in Edit > Keyboard Shortcuts), InDesign will tell you if a key you enter is assigned to another function, and what function it is assigned to, before you store the new shortcut.
