Example: Assigning styles to shortcut keys

You can configure shortcut keys to quickly assign styles in your document. Some shortcuts are predefined, such as Ctrl+1 for the Heading 1 paragraph style and Ctrl+2 for Heading 2. You can modify these shortcuts and create your own.

  1. Click Tools > Customize > Keyboard. The Keyboard page of the Customize dialog opens.
  2. To have the shortcut key assignment available only with one component (for example, Writer), select that component’s name in the upper right corner of the page; otherwise select button to make it available to every component.
  3. Choose the shortcut keys you want to assign a style to. In this example, we have chosen Ctrl+9.
  4. In the Functions section at the bottom of the dialog, scroll down in the Category list to Styles. Click the + sign to expand the list of styles.
  5. Choose the category of style (our example uses a paragraph style). The Function list will display the names of the available styles for the selected category. The example shows some of OOo’s predefined styles.
  6. To assign Ctrl+9 to be the shortcut key combination for the Text Body style, select Text Body in the Function list, and then click Modify. Ctrl+9 now appears in the Keys list.
  7. Make any other required changes, and then click OK to save these settings and close the dialog.
