- When you first define (or redefine a style), choose the shortcut. Opt-Cmd-1 to Opt-Cmd-9 can be selected.
- To change an existing shortcut, open the Styles Panel (Format > Style > Show Styles Panel), Ctrl-click or right-click on the style whose shortcut you want to change, and use the "Change Keyboard Shortcut" submenu of the contextual menu.
If you don't want to use one of the preset numbers, you will need to use macOS's built-in ability to customise keyboard shortcuts:
1. Go to System Preferences > Keyboard > Shortcuts.
2. Select "App Shortcuts" on the left.
3. Click +".
4. Select Scrivener as the application.
5. Type the name of the menu item exactly as it appears in Scrivener (e.g. "Emphasis").
6. Type the shortcut and hit "Add".
One caveat: if the shortcut already exists in the app (for instance Cmd-I) then the first menu item from left-to-right/top-to-bottom that uses the shortcut will be invoked. Therefore, if you want to use a shortcut that is already in use, you must also assign a different shortcut to the menu item that currently uses the shortcut you want to use.
All the best,

Would it be Style/"name of style"?
