Office Excel Format Painter - keyboard shortcut?


  • Hi all -

    Is there a keyboard shortcut for the Format Painter function? In MSWord, it's:

    SHIFT+CTRL+C to copy the 'formatting' and then:

    SHIFT+CTRL+V to paste said 'formatting'.

    Why isn't this in Excel 2013? And what's the solution you'd recommend?
