See that little paint brush button up there? That is called the format painter tool. Maybe you all use it? I had never heard of it until the other night when my husband saw me highlighting shapes and changing them on every page by searching for the picture I wanted to use to fill them. Since I was filling them all with the same background picture, apparently format painter was the way to go. From what I can tell it works with fonts, shapes, and pictures and copies/pastes the format with one click.
It's hard to show since all you really do is click the button, but here is an example. Imagine I had finished these writing posters and then decided I hate the colors I used to glow the font.
Normally I would change the text box on each slide individually, since they all say different things. Instead, just change one text box so it is the way you want it to be. I'll change it to red.
Then, select the text box you want all of the others to look like. You can see the box that appears around the words below. (To do the whole text box, you don't want the cursor showing. If it is, it will only format word by word instead of the whole box.)
Then click the format painter button up at the top. If you click it once, it will only remember the format once. If you double click, it will remember it until you turn it off by clicking it again or to the side of your slide.
Go to another text box you want to look just like it and simply click in it. It will change to match whatever you had selected when you pressed the format painter button. You can keep going from slide to slide as long as you double clicked the format painter button. With one click, they will all be formatted the same...size, color, font, effects, etc.
You can do the same thing with shapes, filling shapes, picture effects, etc. Above I accidentally clicked the badge and it added the reddish glow from the text. It makes it really easy to go through and change colors and effects quickly.
I hope there is someone else out there who can use this!
Meanwhile, check out my writing process signs. I LOVE them! I hope you do too!
