I work on the Apple MacBook Pro sometimes with Microsoft Word, sometimes with Apple Pages, depending on the project. Both have useful functions for dealing with text - if you can find them. If you want to transfer the formatting of one section of text to another, you can do this in both the Office and the iWork app. Copy formatting in Word or Copy style in Pages is realized by marking the source text, then clicking the correct menu bar icon and then marking the target text. Font, bold, italic and underline formatting, font size, color and more can be adopted or removed.
Especially when a block of text, a table or a text field is copied and pasted from another source (another Word document, website, app, PDF), the content can be formatted differently than the rest of the document. Instead of manually adjusting the font, size, color, alignment, spacing and the like, a copy-and-paste feature can also be used for this. The function is hidden in the start menu at the top left and has a brush as an icon (see picture). This is how you proceed to use the function:
The process is similar in Pages, but may require some preliminary work. This is because the symbols for "Copy style" and "Paste style" are not shown by default in the toolbar above the document. To add them, just follow these instructions:
Once this has happened, the symbols remain there even if you close the app, turn off the Mac, etc. You can of course remove them by adjusting the bar above the text document again if they are no longer needed. But if you want to use it, it works like this:
