In the previous Pages release there used to be the possibility to assign keyboard shortcuts to styles, although limited to the F1..F8 keys.
Apparently this feature is missing from the freshly installed Pages 5.0. Even worse, shortcuts do not apply to documents created with a template that defined the shortcuts link.
Is there any other way to assign keyboard shortcut to styles?
Update: in current version (5.2) of Pages the feature has been re-introduced. I guess this closes the question.
