Copy all formatting from one object to another

Microsoft Office InfoPath 2003 includes a Format Painter tool that lets you quickly reuse the same text formatting in more than one place. This is the quickest way to copy text formatting—for example, font size and color—from one object to another.

  1. Select the text, control, or other object with the attributes you want to copy.
  2. On the Standard toolbar, click Format Painter Button image, and then click the object you want to copy the attributes to.

ShowTip

  • You can copy all of the attributes of an object to several objects by double-clicking Format Painter Button image, and then selecting several objects in succession. Click Format Painter Button image again when you're done.
  • You can quickly copy formatting by using keyboard shortcuts. To copy formatting, select the text, control, or other object with the attributes you want to copy, and then press CTRL+SHIFT+C. To apply the copied formatting, click the object you want to copy the attributes to, and then press CTRL+SHIFT+V.
