Word has built in macros to perform routine actions such as using the Format Painter to copy formatting.
Rather than trying to guess the name or look up the shortcut keys, use this seldom mentioned trick to find toolbar macro names.
Press the three key combination of Ctrl, Alt, and + (the plus sign on the Numbers keypad).
The mouse pointer changes to a 4-leaf clover.
Click on a toolbar icon. Word will display a form revealing the macro name and the assigned shortcuts.
(It works the same way in 2007+)
