Learn PowerPoint 2011 for Mac: Copying Text Attributes with Format Painter

Created: Monday, June 11, 2012, posted by Geetesh Bajaj at 3:30 am



The Format Painter option does an amazing job of copying all your formatting attributes from one slide object to another. For example, you can copy all attributes of a shape (and even the text that the shape contains) to another shape, text box, or even a text placeholder. However, this is an all-or-nothing option. Sometimes, you may want to just copy the text formatting attributes, such as your text effects, or font styles — without copying the shape fill or any of the other shape attributes. This can be even more puzzling when your text by itself is formatted in more than one style. Selecting the entire text box, and then copying its attributes to another text box using the Format Painter will never replicate two text styles — so clearly there has to be a better way! That’s the reason for this tutorial — read further to understand.

Learn how to use the Format Painter command effectively to copy text attributes in PowerPoint 2011 for Mac.
