Fill down from cell above

Windows shortcut 
Mac shortcut 

This shortcut copied data from the cells above to cells below, without having to copy and paste. To fill down into more than one cell at once, make a selection that includes multiple rows below. Cell references in formulas will update normally.

Source and target cells do not need to be next to each other, but you'll need to select the target cell first before the source cell in this case.
