Copying Formatting Using the Format Painter

The Format Painter transfers formatting from one object to another.

To copy formatting:

1.
Select an object that has the formatting you want to copy (Figure 2.17).

Figure 2.17. Select the formatted object.


2.
Click the Format Painter button on the Standard toolbar to pick up the object’s formatting (Figure 2.17).

3.
Select the object to receive the formatting. If the object is a passage of text, drag across the text you want to format (Figures 2.18 and 2.19).

Figure 2.18. Drag across the text with the Format Painter pointer, which displays a small paint brush.


Figure 2.19. The formatting has been copied to the selected text.
