Tip 237 – Quickly format multiple blocks of text using this Format Painter trick

If you have used the Format Painter, you know it is used to copy the formatting from one block of text to another. This also works for shapes or images.

If you have multiple blocks of text you want to use the Format Painter on, double click the icon rather than single-clicking, and it will stay locked on, allowing you to quickly apply the selected format to multiple items in your document.
