I am using the standard idiom for styling the selected text, as shown (for example — there are others) in Inserting Styled Clipboard:
- Type the ⌘C Keystroke
- Apply Style to System Clipboard
- Type the ⌘V Keystroke
- Delete Past Clipboard 0
I have a number of macros that apply styles. I have been happily using them in TextEdit, but I have discovered that many (most?) applications don’t seem to accept pasted styled clipboards. A brief selection:
- Word 2011
What have other people’s experiences been with this? Does it come down to which applications are using standard Cocoa text editors?
