Copy Format Keyboard Shortcut for Mac

Can anybody tell me the keyboard shortcut for the copy format function?

In future versions would it be possible to include a “style painter” type button amongst the formatting icons?

Is it already there, and I just missed it. If so, a thousand pardons. And many thanks for showing it to me.


You can find the keyboard shortcuts for any command by looking through the menus, so if you look in the Format > Formatting menu you will see that “Copy Formatting” has the keyboard shortcut ctrl-opt-cmd-C.

You can add this command to the toolbar by going to View > Customize Toolbar… Add “Copy Style” and “Paste Style” to your toolbar.

Hope that helps.

All the best,


Awesome. Thanks.

I’d found the copy style key combo, but wrongly assumed it would work like Word style painter, and all I had to do was highlght the intended text. When it didn’t change the text style, I thought I was doing something wrong. I didn’t realize that I needed to “paste style”.

Now I’m all set.
