Storing Coloured Symbols

  Blueclub 17:19 19 Jan 2007

In my original thread posted earlier today, I may have not explained my problem clearly. I use shortcut keys to access the symbols for the four playing card suits i.e. Ctrl+F1 = Clubs symbol and Ctrl+F2 = Diamond symbol.

The problem faced is that Ctrl+F2 gives me a Black Diamond symbol which I then have to highlight and colour Red.

Using the both the Diamond and Heart symbols approx 1000/week, this process is somewhat tedious and time consuming.

Is there any way I can utilise the shortcut facility and store the Diamond and Heart symbols as Red symbols?

This would have been better in the original thread - rather than starting a new one for the same problem.

First in Tools > Options > View that in Formatting Characters All is ticked.

Assuming that this is in Word, record a macro (Tools > Macro > record New Macro) and assign it to a shortcut key.

Insert > Symbol and insert a heart.

Hold down Shift and press the left arrow to select it.

Format > Font and change the colour to red.

Press the right arrow then hold down Shift and right arrow again to select the paragraph marker.

Format > font and change the colour to Automatic.

Stop the macro recorder then try your shortcut key.

Repeat for diamond.
