Control the formatting when pasting text

In Microsoft Word, if I copy, then paste an area of text that contains a variety of formatting, e,g. My fridge has gone! — it retains the bold and italics when pasting…
Scrivener will do this when dragging and dropping, but with no option to do so when copying and pasting…
Am I missing something? Do I always need to drag and drop when wanting to retain this formatting (different formatting within a copied section). I’d much prefer to use keyboard shortcuts for this basic thing (that Word seems to do with no problem).

Scrivener always maintains this formatting too. The only time it doesn’t is when you use Paste and Match Style - could you have swapped the keyboard shortcuts via System Preferences?

Wow, I actually did exactly that. Must’ve been a while ago… Thanks for your help.
