Keyboard shortcut to close Apply Styles dialogue

Post by jmt356 »

ctrl + shift + s activates the Apply styles dialogue.
What is the keyboard shortcut to close down the dialogue? I believe there is a way to activate the down arrow (Task Pane Options) in the dialogue and then press "C" to close it.

When the Apply Styles pane has the focus, Ctrl+spacebar activates the Task Pane Options menu.

Thanks. So first the user must press ctrl + shift + s and then ctrl + spacebar. I thought there was a more direct path but evidently, not.

That is correct. This has been a pain for years.

It is the reason I prefer to use the Styles Pane instead of Apply Styles. I can banish the Styles Pane with the same shortcut I use to call it.
However, I also have the Styles menu in my QAT.
