Chapter 9. AUTOMATING TEXT >  Using the Eyedropper on Text

Using the Eyedropper on Text

Paragraph and character styles are the most efficient ways to apply and change text formatting for long documents. However, you may want to copy and apply text formatting on text that doesn't have styles. The eyedropper in InDesign 1.5 lets you sample and apply text attributes. (See Chapter 6, "Colors" for more information on how to use the eyedropper to sample and apply fill and stroke attributes.)

To set the eyedropper options for text:

1.
Double-click the eyedropper tool in the Toolbox . This opens the Eyedropper Options dialog box.
