Effortlessly Replicate a Format

For use within all Microsoft Office Apps - Word, Excel, PowerPoint, OneNote, Outlook and Publisher…


One of the most versatile tools Microsoft has ever given us is the Format Painter. Once you’ve found just the right combination of font, size, color, bold, italic, underlined, etc. for a portion of a file you're working in, you don't need to remember all those elements to apply them elsewhere in the document. Simply select a portion of the already formatted text, and click the Format Painter button  Then select the text to apply the formatting to. The Format Painter tool turns off after the format is applied.  Easiest design tip and paint brush cleaning ever!

To keep the Format Painter turned on for multiple uses, double-click the Format Painter button. Now the tool remains active to apply the formatting to as many places as you wish, until it is clicked again to be turned off, or you press the [Esc] key on the keyboard.
