    Mocrosoft Office Help - Shortcuts
    This is driving me nuts...
    I am completely new to Macs, by the way.... yay, I've joined the flock!

    Anyways, two questions....

    I'm trying to make a few shortcuts in MS Word; particularly a "Bullet and Numbering DEFAULT" shortcut. Every time I go to make it though, it always insists on showing the menu of which bullet I want to use, rather than the "default" the document is already using.

    Any hints or tips? This is a minor issue, I realize, but to me its a big deal (especially when I'm in class making notes, I need those bullets on the fly!)

    Thanks a ton for any help

    Modify your Normal file
    Possibly found in: Users/YourUserName/Documents/Microsoft User Data
    You can designate another "home" for the MUD folder, so if yours isn't where mine is, search for the file named "Normal"

    Open that file and set up the bullets you want as defaults, then save it. Now you don't need a shortcut for every file. The default will be as you set it once and for all.

    I don't have an answer for your second question... ???

    Sorry, I did type that at 3am and was pretty exhausted, so I don't think I did type a second question...heh.

    It's still not working. I assigned COM+D as my bullet, removed the same command that opens the font menu, and it still won't work...
    And I'm new to mac; I found the place that your post suggests but I have no idea what to do there.

    EDIT: NEVERMIND - she works!!! Thank you!! =D

    Great! Now that you've found the Normal file, you can open it anytime to modify your own customized default document.
