Tech Tip: Format Painter in Microsoft 2013

Format painter is a neat little tool that allows the user to take all the font formatting they have created and use them on another line.

Open an office program like Word. Style the first line how you would like it to be replicated. You can format things such as font, text size, text color, uppercase/lowercase, etc. Highlight the formatted text, and select Format Painter under the Home tab. Then highlight the lines you would like to be formatted to match. The cursor should have a paint brush tool on the left hand side of the cursor. When you click away from the text it will automatically format.
