There are several ways to preserve formatting when "equalling" a cell in Google Docs:

  1. Use the "Paste Special" function: Copy the cell with the desired formatting, right-click on the cell where you want to paste the formatting, and select "Paste special." In the pop-up menu, select "Paste format only" and click "OK."

  2. Use the "Paint format" tool: This tool can be found in the toolbar. Click on the cell with the desired formatting, then click on the paint format tool. Select the cell where you want to apply the formatting.

  3. Use the "Format Painter" tool: This tool can also be found in the toolbar. Click on the cell with the desired formatting, then click on the format painter tool. Click on the cell where you want to apply the formatting.

  4. Use keyboard shortcuts: To use the "Paste Special" function, press Ctrl+Alt+V (Windows) or Command+Option+V (Mac) after copying the cell. To use the "Paint format" tool, press Ctrl+Alt+C (Windows) or Command+Option+C (Mac) after selecting the cell with the desired formatting. To use the "Format Painter" tool, press Ctrl+Alt+E (Windows) or Command+Option+E (Mac) after selecting the cell with the desired formatting.
