Badia LiveKeys 2.0 Light (free) is an XTension for QuarkXPress 7 that lets you customize keyboard shortcuts.
You can use it to assign shortcuts to menu items that don’t have shortcuts, or change them to ones you’ll remember (or to match shortcuts in other applications). You can also assign shortcuts to Style Sheets that are easier to remember than Option-#.
The full version of LiveKeys ($50) adds the ability to assign shortcuts to tools in the Tools palette, save and share sets of shortcuts, and customize or explore hidden shortcuts that you didn’t know existed.
