Selection.CopyFormat Method (Word)
Published: July 16, 2012
Copies the character formatting of the first character in the selected text.
If a paragraph mark is selected, Word copies paragraph formatting in addition to character formatting. You can apply the copied formatting to another selection by using the PasteFormat method.
This example copies the formatting of the first paragraph to the second paragraph in the active document.
ActiveDocument.Paragraphs(1).Range.Select Selection.CopyFormat ActiveDocument.Paragraphs(2).Range.Select Selection.PasteFormat
This example collapses the selection and copies its character formatting to the next word.
