Format Painter

Let's say you have some beautifully formatted text.  Then you add some text that isn't so beautifully formatted.  How can you easily copy the formatting from the original text to the new text?

Enter "Format Painter".FormatPainter

Available in Microsoft Office programs, Format Painter offers you a quick way to copy formatting from one item to another.

How does it work?

  1. Select the text whose formatting you want to copy
  2. On the toolbar, click the Format Painter icon
  3. Select the text you want to apply the formatting to  ("paint it"!)
  4. The text will take on the new formatting.
