Copying and Pasting Font Formatting
Another handy timesaving feature is PowerPoint's ability to copy and paste font styles, which includes most formatting that you have applied to text, including the font, font size, color, and character spacing (though not line spacing). The Format Painter allows you to "pick up" formatting from some text and "paint" it onto the destination text.
To copy and paste font styles:
- Select the text that has the formatting you want to copy.
- Click Home > Clipboard > Format Painter (Figure 4.38).
Figure 4.38 The Format Painter is one of PowerPoint's most useful tools.
Figure 4.39 You can paint formats that you've picked up with the Format Painter on to other text when the cursor changes into this icon.
Select the destination text.
The text takes on the format of the text that you selected in Step 1.
