How could I assign a keyboard shortcut for very specific commands in OneNote 2013?

For example: I need to assign a keyboard shortcut for a specific text style [(Bold)+(Underline)+(FontSize:13)+(Color:Red)] to be "Alt+4". When I click "Alt+4", the text style changes to [(Bold)+(Underline)+(FontSize:13)+(Color:Red)].

Another example: I need to assign a keyboard shortcut for another specific text style [(NotBold)+(NotUnderline)+(Italic)+(FontSize:8)+(Color:Yellow)+(HighlighColor:Black)] to be "Alt+5". When I click "Alt+5", the text style changes to [(NotBold)+(NotUnderline)+(Italic)+(FontSize:8)+(Color:Yellow)+(HighlighColor:Black)].

This cannot be done directly but it can be achieved for example with use of AutoHotKey tool.

  1. In OneNote, find out and write down sequence of keys* needed to perform the action.
  2. Pick suitable keyboard shortcut for launching your key sequence.
  3. Add a macro to AutoHotKey to send the sequence you collected in step 1 when you press shortcut chosen in step 2. (see example of 4 macros for such tasks)

*) you can also use mouse clicks into desired position relative to top left corner of the window, but actions triggered by keystrokes are simpler to maintain
