Microsoft word has a "copy format" command: CTRL+SHIFT+C copies all the style from a selected text. It's kinda similar to the "paint" command but more useful as it can be repeated over and over, and it is easily accessible from keyboard. Is there something similar on Libreoffice writer?

LibO Writer has similar function available with its very extensive STYLES support. If you are interested I strongly recommend you read the LibO Writer Chapter 6 (Introduction to Styles) and 7 (Working with styles). Manuals can be found at and you can view individual chapters.

You can access the Styles and Formatting Sidebar from F11, or with version 5 from the Styles menu. Your document is probably set to the default Paragraph Style. Right Click on the style entry and you can then modify the settings, spacing, font, language etc. When you choose that style, the settings will be repeated.

Styles is too large a subject to do justice here, but I find it one of the most important and exciting parts of Writer> I hope you do to… Peter
