Lissa, I'm not sure if this will be quick enough, but I find sticking with
the keyboard pretty fast.  After you select the text:  F8, I, Down Arrow,
Enter.

Take care.

Ah, I see, I think. It's a bit counterintuitive: I go to the menu and I see
"apply style" and "apply last style," so I assumed that I could apply any
style that was in the above style list (in this case, italics).

Is there any way to "quickly" turn highlighted text into italics in a dxp
file? Thanks.
