Hi Joanmarie, yes, actually I just noticed what both you and Peter just pointed out, it goes pretty quickly once you get the hang of it. Thanks again!

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.

Lissa,

I don't find a problem here. Shift-F8 works only for linear (aka paragraph) styles. And "last" means the style in the paragraph before this one -- not whatever you most recently applied elsewhere in the document. So it won't work on the first paragraph of a document.

Does that help? If not, please let me know specifically what you're finding.

- Peter

Hi,

Shift-F8 (apply last style) doesn't seem to work.
