Is there a way to customize keyboard commands in Outlook 2007 as there is in

Word 2007?

In Word 2007 Sent Left, Sent Left Extend, Sent Right and Sent Right Extend

are handy commands I would like to be able to use in Outlook. This was

possible in Outlook 2003 when Word was selected as the email editor. Even

though Word 2007 is the email editor for Outlook 2007 and these commands are

available in Word they do not appear available in Outlook (???).

If this is true is there some other way to keyboard select individual

sentences or move from sentence to sentence? Thx.

You mean the CTRL and/or SHIFT combinations with arrow keys, Home, End, Page

Up, Page Down, etc...?

They all work in Outlook as well.

They are indeed not available as individual button which you could put on

the Quick Access Toolbar as you can do in Word.

My question more generally regards assigning keyboard shortcuts to Word

commands. In Word it is possible to assign a keyboard shortcut to any one of

list of selectable Word commands.

Since Word is the email editor for Outlook my question is why is this not

possible in Outlook 2007 (particularly since it was possible in Outlook 2003).

In my circumstance I want to move the cursor (by keyboard) from sentence to

sentence, not just from paragraph to paragraph, line to line or page to page.

Thx.

Which method are you using in Word for this?

Could you post your steps?
