Keyboard Shortcut - Choosing a Font

I've come to really like a new excel keyboard shortcut - one that allows you to easily choose a font for a cell. This shortcut even works for portions of text within a cell. It also works in Microsoft Word. The process for editing the font is:

1. Select the text (or cell)
2. Press Ctrl+Shift+F
3. Type the first few letters of the font
4. Press Enter

This same basic procedure can be used to select the Font Size, by using Ctrl+Shift+P. The key to remembering this shortcut is to think of font size specified as Points.
