    There comes a point when working with Style Sheets that you might have too many of them. Add to this the fact that there are now three kinds of styles: Object, Paragraph and Character.
    So how do you sort through them quickly without having to move your mouse all the way over to the three palettes?
    Quick Apply.
    There you go…Quick Apply.
    Simply Cmmd + Return (Mac) or Cntrl + Enter (Windows) and you’ll see a menu drop from the Control Palette. Type in the first letter or two of the style and you’re rockin’.

    If you have an object selected with the selection tools, you’ll see the menu contains ALL the styles in your document. If you have your insertion point (cursor) inside some type, you’ll only be offered the Paragraph and Character Styles.
    Give it a go.
