# Is it possible to define more than 9 shortcuts for notebook cell styles?

You can define shortcuts for notebook cell styles in the stylesheet editor, by adding MenuCommandKey->"7", etc. to the style definition. That is, you can define Alt-1 to set/create a cell with one style, Alt-2 a different style, ..., through Alt-9.

From the documentation in Mathematica 8 for MenuCommandKey for styles:

Acceptable values include None and "1" through "9".

So it appears that there are only 9 possible shortcuts. But there are more than 9 styles I commonly use. Is it possible to define additional such shortcuts?

Yes, you can use the shift key, too. So, in one stylesheet I have, I have defined MenuCommandKey -> "5" for Item and MenuCommandKey -> "%" for SubItem.
