Rapid change font size in Numbers

Platform : Ventura

I am constantly changing font size in Numbers (as in select cell → Inspector → font bigger / smaller arrows).

Basically, I end up using 2 font sizes 7 and 10. Ideally I would like to be able to quicky apply either size and even toggle between the 2. I do not want to change font type or anything else.
Clicking the font bigger / smaller arrows is tedious and I want to write a macro to alternate rapidly between the 2 sizes.

What I tried and did not work:

  • using UI browser and focusing on #3 below (the font size)
    -using at the Press Button menu
  • I even tried Mac OS → settings→ keyboard shortcut → tried to create a shortcut for "10 pt"

thanks in advance for your time and help

How about using ⌘+ (actually ⌘=) and ⌘- to increase/decrease the font size? Here's a macro that use the same base hotkeys, reducing size if you include the ⌥ and increasing it otherwise:
