give us a keyboard shortcut for copy/paste formatting (please!)
I LOVE the paintbrush button (copy/paste formatting) but I desperately need a keyboard shortcut for it!
(Either a pre-set shortcut, or the ability to create my own keyboard shortcuts ...)
Thanks in advance :)

as the native OS,
Option-Shift-Command-V: Paste and Match Style: Apply the style of the surrounding content to the item pasted within that content.
Shift+Ctrl+C copies the format, and wherever you click on next pastes it.
This would be a lot more useful if it worked like in Google Sheets: you're free to use the arrow keys to move to wherever you want, and nothing happens until you do Paste Format (Opt+Cmd+V). You can even move to another place and hit it again, and it will paste the same format. Or select a whole bunch of cells and do it. MUCH more useful than Microsoft's version. (BTW the shortcut to copy format is Cmd+C -- it copies the cell contents plus its formatting. Google Docs uses Opt+Cmd+C to copy the format separately from the contents, and the same Ctrl+Opt+V to paste it.)
