Why is there no keyboard shortcut for Format Painter in Powerpoint for Mac?

Regular Visitor

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!
