If you are experimenting with different styles of cursive fonts in your word processing program --- or if you are designing an invitation or greeting card using different cursive fonts --- you need not access your font toolbar each time you want to change a font. Instead, employ keyboard shortcuts that allow you to copy and paste the fonts quickly. The shortcut keys for Windows and Macintosh machines are very similar.
