Microsoft Word keyboard shortcut to close the sidebar
Authored by: kikjou on Feb 27, '13 07:55:19AM

Why not simply make a keyboard shortcut in System Preferences -> Keyboard? I tested it with Microsoft Word in Lion and Mountain Lion.

You might have to press the shortcut twice to close the sidebar, unless you had a different shortcut for each item in the sidebar sub menu, right?

Yes, a separate shortcut would have to be assigned to each of the sidebar menu items (four in my version of Word). The current script generically closes the sidebar independent of which specific sidebar is open.

Hi,

Could you elaborate on this? How do you define the shortcut?

Thanks

Are you referring to the keyboard shortcut made through System Preferences, or the one made through the special naming of the Applescript saved in ~/Library/Application Support/Microsoft/Office/Word Script Menu Items?
