I couldn't find anything about this on the forum already. I'm trying to copy and then past/match in Mac Word but the option isn't available when copying from Accordance. Is there a workaround for this? I've abandoned pages since the most recent iteration, so this is the first time having to deal with MS Word...

Have you tried the keyboard shortcut command+option+shift+V to paste what you have copied? I don't have Word on this computer, so can't test it just now, but at least within other Mac apps, that works to match target formatting.

Yes and it works perfectly on anything except MSWord. If I copy from Accordance and then switch to Word, that menu option is actually greyed out. It works fine if I copy to Word from any other app though.

I was just going to say that it's possible, and that I had assigned a shortcut key to it when I noticed it was working for my sample of text copied from Safari, but not Accordance. We'll look into this.

 

By the way, I recommend Joe's script library, which includes a Word plugin.
