    There isn't one as far as I'm aware... Have you tried recording a Macro?

    If it's not an urgent query (which I'm surmising it probably isn't), it's definitely better to try and find a solution out yourself via google, TSR etc, than bothering your team with it... He's in IBD, I'm sure the last thing they want is a high maintenance intern. Of course, if it's a genuinely important question there's definitely no harm in asking. Just my 2c.

    No don't think so, but as said before, record a macro. It'll make life much easier!

    quickest way I know is ctrl+1, tabbing along, selecting colour and then f4ing the rest, but no doubt you already knew that

    depends how much you shade though. I suppose if you really wanted to, you could customise the buttons so that the fill button moves to where the new file button normally is, so then all you would have to do is press alt, ctrl+tab to bring up the palette.

    hope this helps
