Chapter 4. Getting the Type Right > Copying and Pasting Font Styles

Copying and Pasting Font Styles

Another handy timesaving feature is Keynote's ability to copy and paste font styles, which includes most formatting that you have applied to text, including the font, font size, color, and character spacing, though not the line spacing or horizontal or vertical alignment. See Table 4.1 for a list of which text attributes can and can't be copied.
