Note this works with custom palettes as well as pre-defined palettes.

1. Open the Highlighting pane via the Tool menu

2. Expand a palette and select the menu of the style you which to create a shortcut for.

3. Expand the Shortcut Key selection menu and select the key you wish to use as a shortcut for this style.

4. When you have selected the shortcut key, it will appear to the right of the style in the palette and the shortcut menu will show the key as in use by showing the palette name/style name.

5. To use the shortcut, select the text to be highlighted as usual, then hit the shortcut key ... in the example the shortcut key is 1.

6. One achieves the standard result:

Am I to understand that this means that I can see all shortcuts in use?

On 6.7 RC 2, OS 10.11.1, it does not show all shortcuts and it also doesn't show the palette name/style name (and never has, as far as I can remember).

Yes you should be able to see all the shortcuts in use. I don't have a Mac to test on so I don't know if this is lack of parity or a bug.

Okay...maybe some Mac users could check to see if it's working or not.

I've always wished for a list of used shortcuts. Smile

Not being much of a highlighter I have no experience of this but it does seem to work on the latest stable Logos and the Beta OS X.

This is what I get, but it's not what MJ is getting. Note in her screenshot that the list of shortcuts will show if they are used, and where (she only has one used shortcut).
