Adding Fonts to the Shortcut Menu

For quick access to your favorite fonts, add them to the Text shortcut menu (the one that pops up whenever you right-click selected text). Here’s how:

  1. Right-click any toolbar and select Customize from the shortcut menu.

  2. In the Customize dialog box, click the Toolbars tab.

  3. In the Toolbars list, select Shortcut Menus (check the box to the left of the name). The Shortcut Menus toolbar appears.

  4. In the Shortcut Menus toolbar, select Text from the Text menu. The Text shortcut menu appears.

  5. In the Customize dialog box, click the Commands tab.

  6. Under Categories, select Fonts.

  7. Locate a font you want to add and drag it to the Text shortcut menu.

  8. Repeat Step 7 for every font you want to add to the Text Shortcut menu.

  9. Click Close.

Now, to apply a font, all you have to do is right-click selected text and select the font.
