I have several fields in templates that sometimes share same information, so i cut/paste. To improve the look, i drew borders in/around each template. But sometimes when i cut a field within a template, and paste it on another template, I end up with a value without a border (bottom or top)
Therefore, i have to re-draw border most of the time (after cut/paste).
Can anyone help me with this.
Thanks.

What is the shortcut key for Format Selection?
Ctrl+1 (the number one) will open the Format dialog for whatever is selected.

If the border is just a simple box you can rebuild it by selecting the range, then hitting Ctrl-Shift-&.
If the range is a congruent range, select a cell in the range, hit Ctrl-Shift-* then Ctrl-Shift-&.

By the way: Ctrl-Shift-_ removes borders on the selected range.
