How to Setup Keyboard Shortcuts for Custom Styles

If you are using a custom style frequently, you may want to have a keyboard shortcut for it to access it faster. You can use the Quick Access Toolbar (QAT) to get keyboard shortcuts for your custom styles. All the buttons in the QAT get an automatic keyboard shortcut in the form of Alt + n where n is the button number. So the fifth button in the QAT has Alt + 5 as its shortcut:
