Other Office for Mac apps have the keyboard shortcuts Cmd+Shift+C and Cmd+Shift+V to copy and paste format (Format Painter).

 

Why is this missing in Powerpoint for Mac? Is this a deliberate design choice or simply an oversight?

 

I find the absence of these shortcuts to be a huge productivity killer.

Hi David

 

I don't own a Mac but there are short cuts that you can read from the Microsoft site (if you have not already seen):

Good luck friend!
