Another surprising and very special feature inside TextEdit, copying style. It can copy definitely all styles, those styles are :
- Underlines: None, Single, Double, or Color
- Strokes: None, Single, Double or Color
- Text Color
- Font Shadows: Opacity, Shadow Spread, Altitude, Angle
- Font Family
- Font Weight: Regular, Bold, Bold Oblique
- Font Size
It is like usual copy-paste action with a little tweak as the purpose is to copy the invisible part, not the visible one. Usual copy is Command-C and paste is Command-V, in this copying the invisible case Command-Option-C and pasting with Command-Option-V. It’s only needed an addition Option.
Additional styles like Kern (Default, None, Tighten, or Loosen), Ligature (Default, None, or All), Baseline (Default, Superscript, Subscript, Raise, or Lower), and Character Shape also count as styles.
No more repetitive adjust style tasks, no more grumbling; Thanks to TextEdit.
