Some keyboard shortcuts are intuitive, such as Ctrl B for Bold and Ctrl I for Italics.

Some keyboard shortcuts are not intuitive. For example, Alt HFK decreases the font size.  As shown in the table below with a bit of creativity you can create a memorable mnemonic to help you remember the keyboard shortcut.
