Re: ctrl-I for italics?
I am using XP and Mathematica 5. Ctrl-b and ctrl-u work fine. These two show in the menu next to Bold and Underline but there is nothing next to Italic. Ctrl-i works fine in other applications but in Mathematica it produces only a beep. It would have been nice to have the ctrl-i for italics. Is there a way to program it?
