I like to use strikethrough a lot, and each time I have to use the mouse (Format/Font/Strikethrough). Is there a way to give it a shortcut, such as "option -" ??, or maybe control-something.

    Go to View menu > Customize toolbar > put the button Character up in the toolbar

    I am looking for the exact same shortcut. I have done what Fruhulda suggests, but am unclear as to what the button character is?
    I follow as far as "customize toolbar" from there I don't understand the suggestion. I am trying to use the keyboard short cut in Notes within Mail.

    natmac I don't think you have that option in Mail.

    I am trying to use strikethrough in Notes within Mail. I noticed that the customize tool bar has different options depending on where you open it. So for instance, if you open customize tool bar in Mail, that does not have the "A" with the word character under it. Nor does the Finder window.

    John, which program are you using while you see the underlined letter A?

    Really, I would like to find a shortcut to strike through in Notes so that when the new iPhone OS comes out on June 17 I can use notes as my to do list.

    Why they don't sync the to do's within Mail as well, I have no idea.... Wouldn't it be nice?

    natmac, here we are in the forum for Pages 08. If you need help with Mail post in the forum for Mail.
