Word Styles issue RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    I am have an issue with binding styles to different hot keys. I can bind the keys locally for a document, but if I create a new document the hot keys do not roll over to the new doc. Is there any way to update the styles for every doc I create after setting the initial key bindings?

  • Make sure to add the style to your Normal template and then, when you assign the shortcut key to the style, make sure that “Save in” is set to “Normal.dotm” (or “Normal.dot” for versions prior to Word 2007). This is required for the shortcut to be globally available.
