If you have done a lot of formatting to a particular object, there's an easy way to copy those attributes to another object without having to redo and remember all the steps. It's called the Format Painter tool and it works on any object, including text. Staff author Jess Stratton demonstrates how to use the tool in Microsoft PowerPoint.
