In Final Draft, when I paste in text into the editor, it defaults to an action.

If I select the text or put my cursor on a spot in the text, I can go to the menu and choose "Format > Change Element to > Dialogue". There is also a dropdown menu at the top of the editor that does this.

Is there a keyboard shortcut that will let me do this?

    Questions about the use of writing software are on-topic here, yes. We have tags for scrivener and microsoft-word, so I'm guessing we simply haven't received enough Final Draft questions to warrant one.
