(This idea is something we’ve heard from customers over time from several of our sources of feedback. We’re posting it here to gauge how well this fits our users’ needs. So please let us know what you think.)


Often there is a need to quickly jump between tools. And you don't always want to have to take your hands off your keyboard or hunt for the location of the tool with your mouse. So one suggestion we've heard (possible with the Ribbon a couple years ago) would be to have the ability to associate any menu command that can go on the toolbar with a custom keyboard shortcut. Users would be able to assign it themselves.

This Idea didn’t get enough votes to prioritize for active consideration at this time. So, we are marking this one as Not Planned for the time being. It’s definitely something that could be improved at some point in the future and it would be a valuable addition for those that regularly use the same tools. Our first step to solve that problem will be working toward having an easier way to access your favorite quick styles and tools. But at this point, there are a lot of other things things we’ll be focusing on first.
