I just tried it...Print Preview is ALT, F, W, V. What was really cool,
though, was when I pressed ALT+F, the Word button menu opened, and
there were indicators as to which keys I could press next. For
example, there was a W over Print, an F over Save, and an X over Exit.

It looks like it might depend on the menu as to how well the combos
were preserved. ALT+E,F got me the Find dialog box and there was a
"tip" at the top of the screen that was following along. I just don't
use ALT keystrokes that often to try any others...I don't know what
they were!

PS I love Word 2007. It took me a month or so to get up-to-speed with
the pieces I use a lot...headers and footers, AutoText (now called
Building Blocks), etc...but I'm just as fast in Word 2007 as I am with
Word 2003 now. (And I switch between them on a regular basis,
depending on what I'm doing.)
