Keyboard Shortcut - Numbers Cell Background Color

I use Numbers to create a spreadsheet in which I need multiple colored cells. Is it possible to create a keyboard shortcut to change the background color of a cell with a click? (Up until now, I’ve been using some pre-created blocks on the spreadsheet to cut and paste. The trouble with that is that it over-writes the text on each cell, filling it with a blank cell that’s the correct color.)

Hi David,

From Number’s Format menu you might find what you need.
⌥⌘C will copy the style and ⌥⌘V will paste it.

But why use a menu shortcut when I could use a complicated script?!

Just kidding. Thank you! That’s what I need. I was looking for this under “Edit” instead of “Format.”
