Default Keyboard shortcuts to change heading styles

Having gotten used to and enjoying Outline View, I've now developed a new
annoyance: having to move the cursor with teh mouse, up to change the style
from Normal to Heading 1, then Heading 2, etc.

Now to get to Normal style, I just press Ctrl+Shft+N; I don't know if I set
up a macro for that or if that's the default shortcut for it. But I would
like to set up keyboard shortcuts for Heading 1, Heading 2, Heading 3. Are
there any? Or do I have to set up macros and then keyboard shortcuts for them
as well?

Try Ctrl+Alt+1, Ctrl+Alt+2, and Ctrl+Alt+3.

Also, you can assign or change shortcuts for any style -- see
http://www.word.mvps.org/FAQs/Custom...roToHotkey.htm. In the
Customize dialog, the Styles category is near the bottom of the left-hand list.

Great. That did it. Ctrl+Alt+1, etc.

As often as I use these, I hate to take my hands off the keyboard to find
the mouse, then take the cursor up to the style menu, etc.

You might find Alt+Shift+Left/Right/Up/Down to be useful, too, particularly
when you're not in Outlining view. Experiment with them to see what they do!
(Alt+Shift+Up/Down also work in tables. A+S+Up moves the current row up, and
A+S+Down moves it down. It makes for rather handy table manipulation.)
