Format text with PowerPoint 2010 Format Painter

How many times have you changed a line of text or an entire block of text in PowerPoint with two or three different settings?

For example, you increased the font size, changed the color, and made it italic. Now you want to apply the same changes to a few more lines of text.

Enter the format Artist. Format Painter allows you to copy all of these attributes to another string at once, rather than applying all three individually. Here’s how to do it.

Copy text attributes to one text string

  1. Select the formatted text you want to copy.

  2. On the tab At home on the ribbon, click once on the button Format Editor

  3. Navigate to the slide containing the text to which you want to apply this formatting. (This can be on the same slide or on a different slide.)

  4. Select the text to which you want to apply this formatting.

  5. The formatting of the first object is applied to this second string.

Copy text attributes to more than one string

  3. Go to the first slide that contains the text to which you want to apply this formatting. (This can be on the same slide or on a different slide.)

  4. Select the text to which you want to apply this formatting.

  5. The formatting of the first object is applied to this second string.

  6. Continue applying formatting to as many lines of text as possible.

  7. When you have applied the formatting to all text strings, click the button again Format Painter to disable this feature.
