Universal keyboard shortcuts are great — if you can remember the right keystrokes, you can save time across a wide variety of applications.
A lot of legal work, however, requires using commands that are unique to one application. For example, inserting table of authorities entries is only something you need to do in Microsoft Word. Unless you write briefs every day, remembering a keyboard shortcut might be challenging.
That’s where the Quick Access Toolbar (“QAT”) comes in. The QAT gives you one-click access to the commands you use most often, and it can be customised for each Microsoft Office application separately.
