Hi, a quick question: In the file-save dialog box in Word for Mac (2004 version), is there a shortcut key for the 'don't save' button? Command + . cancels, but it there a way to hit 'don't save' with the keyboard? It's frustrating to have to reach for the mouse whenever I want to close a document without saving.

Thanks, Bix

Esc also cancels btw.
As for 'don't save': If you have 'full keyboard access' enabled, you should see a blueish glow trim around the 'don't save' field. (To turn on full keyboard access go to: 'system prefs>keyboard & mouse> keyboard shortcuts).

Just hit space to select the don't save button or enter/return to select the save button.

Aptmunich and Fearless, Thanks for your responses. Fearless, command +D worked like a charm! Thanks! I have several Mac/Office reference books and not one of them listed this as a shortcut (surprise, surprise).

Traditionally, Command + (First letter of button) triggers that button in dialogs in Mac applications. Lately, though, it's becoming less common.
