    Control, Alt, Numeric + Combo (2000)

    Hi all,

    Probably just idle curiosity here, but somehow I managed to press Control, Alt and the "+" from the numeric keypad while in Word and the cursor changed to a strange shape but operated exactly the same way as it always does in terms of right clicking, left clicking etc. I pressed ESC and it returned to the normal cursor and under "Undo" there was nothing there, so I'm wondering just what that combination of keys actually achieved...any ideas?

    Thanks!

    It turned into a cloverfield & is the command Tools/Customize/KeyboardShortcut. If you now press any other keyboard combination used by Word, a dialog box opens with that keyboard combination selected. You can then reassign it. It is useful for reassigning a shortcut that you know about or for learning what command a keyboard shortcut goes to.

    Hope this helps.
