Apply a style in Flare using just the keyboard

Postby johnbwriter on Tue Jun 24, 2008 9:40 am


Simple question, but how does one apply a style (paragraph or character) in Flare using only the keyboard? FrameMaker has very useful keyboard shortcuts for styles (press F9 and then type as many characters as needed to uniquely select the paragraph style; F8 for character styles).

It seems that in Flare, I can press F12 to get to the Styles, but I can't select the one I want with the keyboard. Is there any way around having to use the mouse?

Unfortunately, at the moment Flare doesn't have this feature. I agree with you that it should, though. I'd recommend making a feature request: while I'm sure it's been requested before, Madcap tell us that the more people ask for something the more likely it will be implemented ("request early, request often" or something like that....)

You can make requests and bug reports here:
