Your "Printing a Key Assignment List" was a big help to me. I had previously made up macros to change the font color from automatic to red and then from red back to automatic but had not used them in a while. I forgot the key combinations I had assigned, so I couldn't use the macros. Printing out the key assignments showed me what combinations I had used. Thanks! (I'm sure there is a way to find out the properties of macros so you can edit/change them (so I could have seen the key combinations I assigned), but I don't know how to do it.
