Hi :)
Neat.  I was wondering what work-around you would find.

The only one i thought of was to try to remember that i would have to
select an area of text to make bold instead of doing the toggling method.
I think your way is better though.
Thanks and regards from
Tom :)

Nice! :)  I wonder if you can reconfigure the
Ctrl B
combo to apply the relevant style instead of just making it bold

Yes, you can, but I found you don't want to.

In the Tools/Customize dialogs, you can assign any style to a keystroke
combination. I tried it by reassigning Ctrl-B to the Strong Emphasis
character style and Ctrl-I to the Emphasis style. But, unlike the direct
formatting commands, these don't *toggle* the attribute. So, if while
typing, I hit Ctrl-B, then everything after it applies the Strong Emphasis
character style. If I hit Ctrl-B again, it *doesn't* turn it off. So, I
reassigned those keystrokes to their toggled effects.

Instead, I assigned Alt-B and Alt-I to the respective character styles.
Then, I assigned Alt-D to the "Default" character style. Now, I can apply
the desired style quickly while typing without altering the default
behavior of the program for those times when I might need it.
