Format Painter

The Format Painter can be used to easily copy appearance formatting and properties from one markup to another markup or group of markups. The Format Painter will remember the last source used and use its formatting and properties as default until another source is chosen.

The Format Painter will analyze a markup’s color, line width, opacity, line style, hatch pattern, line/polyline/callout start and end points, and font properties (type, style, size, alignment, margin, underline, strikethrough), and it will determine which formatting properties it can apply to the selected markups.

Note: The Format Painter does not consider the type of markups involved and it will apply the formatting and properties from dissimilar markups if you choose to do so.

The Format Painter only changes the appearance properties of a markup. The tool will not alter the subject or label properties of the target markup.
