The Format Painter is an awesome option within PowerPoint that lets you copy formatting attributes of slide objects such as shapes, text boxes, pictures, etc. – and apply those attributes to another similar slide object. Do note though that the Format Painter is an all-or-nothing option that picks up and applies all formatting associated with the object, although you can choose to only copy text formatting in any object using techniques explained in specific tutorials we have ceated.
