Format Painter
To save time and avoid formatting errors, you can use the Format Painter to apply
custom formatting to other places in your presentation quickly and easily. You can use this
feature in three ways:
To copy only character attributes, such as font and font effects, select text that has
these qualities.
To copy both paragraph attributes, such as alignment and indentation and character
attributes, select the entire paragraph.
To apply the same formatting to multiple words, phrases, or paragraphs, double-click
the Format Painter button and then select each item you want to format. You then
can press the esc key or click the Format Painter button to turn off this feature.
