How to Use the Format Painter to Change the Look of PowerPoint 2007 Text
When you’re in a hurry to change the look of text and reformat paragraphs on your PowerPoint 2007 slides, consider using the PowerPoint Format Painter. This nifty tool works something like a paintbrush. You drag it over text to copy formats from one place to another. Follow these instructions to use the Format Painter:
1Click a place on a slide whose text and paragraph formats you want to copy elsewhere.
Click anywhere within the text and paragraph formats that you want to use again.
2On the Home tab, double-click the Format Painter button.
You can find this button in the Clipboard group. The pointer changes into a paintbrush. Unless you double-click the Format Painter button, you can’t copy format to more than one place.
