Hi.

Next step:

Have the macros that start the email templates and automatically to the contact I open or just idenify, and the macros that create the combobox with the droplist of the email templates.

So if I don't create the bullet points for the macros, is there a way to adjust the macros or do something else that creates a keyboard shortcut to the macro. So if I identify a contact or want to open up the droplist, is there a way to have the keyboard shortcut do it?

And if so, are there limitations on which keyboard areas?

For example, Alt-1 ot can do Alt-a and the same: Ctrl -1 or Ctrl - a?

Thanks so much. I so appreciate your help!!

In Outlook 2007, the only shortcuts you assign to macros are when you add the buttons to the QAT. The combobox should do 'type ahead' - for example, if you use "vcard on email " and "welcome email, "thank you email" you can type v,w, or t then press enter.

So... you could use Alt+4, v enter to open a template

In the QAT, they are assigned automatically in the order they display. Press Alt to see the shortcut assignments. In the main outlook window you can add a & in from of the let you want to use in the shortcut.

In the main outlook interface, with the old toolbars, & signifies the shortcut. I think it's Ctrl+ the letter after the & but it's been forever since I used customized the old toolbars.

The QAT is Alt+ a number.
