Chapter 19. Hog-Wild Special Effects > Transferring Attributes

Transferring Attributes

As useful as styles are, there are times when you'd like to quickly copy the effects and other attributes of one object and apply them to another. Transferring attributes means you don't have to scribble down notes about how different objects are styled when you want to create new objects that match exactly. Happily, Illustrator has a method to suit this means of styling an object as well. When you want to do this, you can suck up attributes with the eyedropper tool and pour them down with the paint bucket. Although the two objects won't have a link as they would with styles, the eyedropper and paint bucket do make it easy to make two objects look alike.

If you paid attention in Chapter 10, these are the same eyedropper and paint bucket tools that sampled and applied text attributes. However, there are a few more controls when working with objects.
