How do you make selected type bold with one keypress? In Pagemaker this was F6. I can't find a corresponding action in InDesign.
I don't belive there is a 1 key shortcut
However you can create your own 1 key shortcut
The keystroke is Command+Shift+ B for Mac or Ctrl+Shift+B for Windows. You can edit it in Edit > Keyboard Shortcuts
Keep in mind that that keystroke only works if the font has been created to support that keystroke. It works with many fonts. In others it does not. Sometimes, choosing Bold applies the Semibold style rather than the Bold style. It's all built into the font, and can't be changed without a font editor.
Also, InDesign will never embolden a font that doesn't have a bold. Unlike Pagemaker and QuarkXPress.
Thank you very much!
