Word 2010 Keyboard shortcuts for printing
When I need to print the current page, I have always liked to use ctrl-P then alt-E. While ctrl-P works still, alt-E does not. Is there another shortcut I should be using for that function in Word 2010?
Also, in previous versions, opening the Print dialog automatically had the number of copies selected so I could just enter the desired number. This does not happen in Word 2010. Any way to make that happen?

To get to the number of copies:
Ctrl-P, Alt, P, N
To print only the current page:
Ctrl-P, Alt, P, A, Enter, Alt, P, P
In the above examples, the Alt key is not pressed in combination with others but in sequence.
You can record a macro to do this and assign a keyboard shortcut to the macro.
Sorry to be the bearer of bad news. Yes, they did make it harder for power users.

OK thanks for the help. I'll look into using macros.

The macro doesn't need to be complicated:
Sub OldPrintDialog() Dialogs(wdDialogFilePrint).Show End Sub
