Style shortcuts can only use the numerical keypad (plus modifier keys).
I like shortcuts, but I like my mouse too!
So, I use shortcuts with my left hand on the keyboard and my right hand on the mouse.
E.g., I apply a para style using Crlt-<. Aha! It's easier that playing Cmd-Alt-Shift-9!
Thank you both for your help, I never thought to use the modifier key and that did the trick!
As I say, you can use Cmd, Alt, Shift or a mix of the three modifier keys, but you can't use Ctrl!
I do! As, e.g., I can use "Cmd-<"!
Try to do it! … Just for fun!
You lost me with the "Ctrl-<" tip with the mouse. How did you get the < from just your mouse? Left click? I'm a former Mac person.
The purpose of a keyboard shortcut is, in my opinion, to save time.
Using the left hand (to play shortcuts), with the right hand on the mouse, is a very good way!
I think everyone will agree!
So why limit, among other things, para styles access to keyboard shortcuts as Cmd, Alt or Shift + keypad number?
No reason! So, if I've decided to apply a para style using "Ctrl-<". Nothing is stopping me! ... If not Adobe!
In any case, this is what it seems a priori (in latin)!
To fix it, I use QuicKeys: e.g., I play "Cmd-1" playing "Ctrl-<"! Very cool … and so easy to do!
