Write your (Word) document with 'style' using keyboard shortcuts

This is a quick tip for people who don't want to start clicking on the Heading/Normal styles all the time when writing a long document (full of titles). This is especially handy when making a quick fist draft taking care of the structure but without looking too much at the format.

Here are the most useful keyboard shortcuts I use in these cases. Change the current selection or line to:

  • Heading 1: Ctrl+Alt+1
  • Heading 2: Ctrl+Alt+2
  • Heading 3: Ctrl+Alt+3
  • Normal: Ctrl+Shft+N
Thes are keyboard shortcuts any good MSWord document writer should know.
