Assign Shortcuts to Style Sheets

QuarkXPresss let you assign numeric keyboard shortcuts to individual style sheets — in other words, you can use a keystroke to assign a Style to text. To assign a shortcut to a style, open the Edit Style Sheets dialog box. You can do that by either choosing Edit> Style Sheets… or Control-clicking/right-clicking on the name of the style sheet in the Style Sheets palette. 

Then click in the Keyboard Equivalent field, and press a key on your keyboard’s numeric keypad. Quark limits Style Sheet shortcuts to the numeric keypad so that you can always use the numbers at the top of the keyboard to type in actual numbers.

Optionally, you can add a combination of modifier keys (Ctrl, Cmd, Option, Shift) along with the number on the keypad, which dramatically increases your shortcut options.
