    I'm an ex-Windows user, and have recently converted to the Mac. I'm finding some frustrations with getting used to Word, as I am a dedicated shortcut user.

    Two questions:
    1) What is the shortcut for accessing the menus - eg in Windows, accessing the File menu was Alt-F. I can't find a simple shortcut to do the same thing.
    2) One of the best features of Word is the 'format paster'. This takes the exact formatting of one set of text and pastes it over another, without having to manually change the font size etc. I can't find this on the Mac. It must be there, surely?

    Thanks in anticipation.
