Word Tip of the Week: Format Painter

27 Feb 2018


If you’ve ever copied content from one document and pasted it into another, you’ve probably had to go back to fix the formatting so that it matches.

There are a couple ways to get everything uniform, but none of them are as good as Format Painter.

This single button makes tedious formatting a breeze.

To use Format Painter:

1. Highlight some text containing the formatting that you want.

2. Click on Format Painter in the toolbar.

3. Highlight the text that you want to change. It will change to the desired formatting.



On the other hand, you might want to keep the formatting from the original document.

In that case, try the little clipboard that appears after you paste in your content.

That clipboard will give you the option to keep the original formatting.



If only all Word formatting was this easy!
