Office Communicator 2007 Keyboard Shortcuts – Communicator – Office.com

I wasn’t aware that Office Communicator supported keyboard shortcuts for text formatting in the chat window.
Since I normally use RDP/MSTSC connections to a work machine (the laptop often moves around which means that network connections aren’t
“persistent”), which means that every once in a while a key like Shift, Alt, Ctrl, or Windows hangs.
That’s how I found out why sometimes the font in the chat window changed a bit: most often the font became strike through, which corresponds to Ctrl-T.
Three things that Microsoft should improve here:
- Unlike the documentation, these shortcuts do not only hold for the “selected text”, but for any text you type after using the shortcut.
- The context menu doesn’t include most of the entries (so there is no hint on that menu in which you can see them).
- Even the context menu entry for Change Font does not include a hint that it maps to Ctrl+Shift+F.
Anyway, this is the list:
To do this Press Bold selected text CTRL + B Italicize selected text CTRL + I Underline selected text CTRL + U Strikethrough selected text CTRL + T Increase font size of selected text CTRL + ] Decrease font size of selected text CTRL + [ Change font CTRL + SHIFT + F
