2) Are there keyboard shortcuts for layouts (environments)? Where
would I find those?
Ditto, but see comments below.
Actually there are. I believe the standard shortcut is M-p, which
gives you a menu in the minibuffer, followed by a letter or number
or letter plus modifier key. So M-p t, for example, select the Title
environment, M-p s the standard one, M-p a is abstract, but M-p A
(uppercase) is Author, etcetera. The shortcuts are linked to actual
keys by the binding file, are editable and to a certain extent
platform-specific. On my Mac, with aqua-bindings, for example, the
shortcut for M-P is actually Option-P, which means that the title
environment is Option-P, t . Other platforms may have other
bindings. Look in the Customization manual (from the help menu),
section 3.3 for more info on bindings.
Also, M-p followed by a space is the equivalent of clicking on the
environment drop-down list, after which typing the first letter of
the desired environment (repeatedly, if necessary) cycles through
choices starting with that letter.
I came to realise it only once your clarifications flowed in. By attempting to
answer somebody's question, I learned something new, as I frequently do
From now on, there will be no need to get hands off the keyboard. I
guess it was
a matter of experience and familiarity with keyboard accelerators.
