I deal with a tremedous amount of text files and we bold hundreds of names. In other software we use the ctrl+B shortcut but we have found we cannot do that in AI. Is there a quicker way than going to the character dropdown box and selecting bold?

Character Styles might help you here.

 

Once you make a Bold character Style, you can apply it with a Click. You could also record an Action to apply the Style, then assign a shortcut key to the action to apply the Character Style using the keyboard
