Hey all,

After doing some searching over the past few days incrementally, I'm almost assuming this isn't possible, but I'm praying there may be a way to do it.

My company has a specific StyleSheet that we use for almost everything. A few weeks ago I asked (like an idiot) how to make all styles viable in the Styles and Formatting window, and of course it was simply by taking off show preview.

I do high volume project maintenance (changing the headers, general formatting, master pages, overall look, ect...) of very large projects daily, all averaging between 600 - 3000 topic pages.

I've gotten pretty fast at general changes and style selecting, but no matter WHERE i search, I can't find a way to keyboard macro frequently used styles.

Here are my questions / desires for this task.:


-Ideally I would want to macro between 7 and 16 styles.

-Is there a way to replace current general RH shortcuts with these desired styles? (I use a few default shortcuts, but not many)

-If I can replace them, can I just pick which to keep and use every other slot for my styles and maybe,.. say ... Clear Formatting?

-If it isn't possible to do this, is there an add-on / helper to do this with?

Thanks for looking and hopefully advising.

You are using a different app to the one Rick suggested. I have used Macro Express with Rh for many years and wouldn't work without it.See www.grainge.org for RoboHelp and Authoring tips @petergrainge

Hi there

You might take a look at a little product named Macro Express.  I linked to it from the text.

Cheers... Rick

The problem I'm having with the Keyboard Express program is the response time. I could just as easily do the formatting with styles and be a paragraph down by the time it responds. I need something nearly instant, so I'm now on the hunt for a Keyboard Express like program, maybe a bit newer.
