In this video, staff author Jess Stratton shows users how to use the Format Painter tool to copy and paste formatting between objects on a slide.
- [Jess] My name is Jess Stratton, and welcome…to this week's edition of PowerPoint Tips Weekly.…This week, I'm going to show you an easy way…to duplicate your work,…to give you consistency across your slides.…I've worked hard on these custom icons,…and I have a few different color schemes I made…to decide between.…I'm not sure which one I want to use.…However, once I decide,…I'm not even sure I remember all the steps I took…and the colors that I used to make these.…Because of that,…it's going to be time-consuming and frustrating…to change them all to whatever I decide.…
Fortunately, I don't have to.…PowerPoint has a great tool called Format Painter.…This allows me to copy and paste formatting, not objects.…That means I can copy the formatting of one object…and paste it towards another object,…which will take on that same formatting.…Let's see it in action.…Here's my icon sets,…and I've decided I'm going to use this one.…I'm going to click once to select the object.…From the Home ribbon tab,…click on the paintbrush icon on the left-hand side.…
