Chapter 12. Formatting and Graphics in Layouts > Formatting Fields or Objects

Formatting Fields or Objects

This section shows you how to change individual fields or objects. If you’re looking to set format defaults for the entire database, see To set formatting defaults, on page 186.) You can, by the way, format several fields at the same time—as long as you’re setting the same attribute in each field, such as text. The new Format Painter makes it much simpler to format fields or objects.

Using the Format Painter

Anyone who has ever used the Format Painter in Microsoft’s Office program will instantly recognize FileMaker’s own Format Painter, which works identically. The Format Painter lets you apply nearly all the attributes of a text field or graphic object to other text fields or graphic objects. You cannot, however, apply text attributes to objects and vice versa.
