Does numbering have shortcut?

    Question

  • Hello,

     

    I would like to ask a question on Word shortcuts.

     

    For bullets list, I know there is a shortcut CTRL + SHIFT + L, but for numbering, does there exist a shortcut?

     

     

     

    Thanks,

    Bob

  • You can create macros to assign Styles that contain the desired numbering and those macros can be assigned to keyboard shortcuts.


    Hope this helps.

  • Or you can assign a shortcut key directly to a numbered style. In the Modify Style dialog box, click the Format button, and then click Shortcut Key.

  • Yup there exist a shortcut key for numbering. It is "Ctrl+Alt+L"

    By default, Ctrl+Alt+L actually applies the LISTNUM field. What formatting it displays will be determined by the context. However, as mentioned earlier in this rather old thread, you can assign a shortcut to any style, for example to a numbered style.
