Here is what the Format Painter looks like:
How to use the Format Painter in Microsoft and Open Office:
- Highlight a section of the text that has the formatting you want to copy.
- Click the Format Painter button*
- Highlight the whole section of text to which you want to copy the formatting.
Note: The Format Painter is mouse-click sensitive. The first click-and-release you make after you click the Format Painter button uses the copied formatting and empties the Format Painter's memory. If you clicked in the wrong place and released the mouse button, then you need to start over at step one and do the whole processes again.
