Time saver -- Format Painter in Microsoft Word

Hi All, Here's a tip that a colleague shared with me recently. There is a tool in Word that many people don't know about called Format Painter. This allows you to easily copy formatted text within a word doc and even between MS Office programs such as word and powerpoint.

This tool is useful if you have formatted something and want to quickly apply that formatting elsewhere. For example, you have created a heading and selected specific font and size, you can use the Format Painter to apply that formatting to other text in the document. If you are not on a tight deadline, you are better off to use Styles, but if you are in a hurry and just need to fix some formatting, Format Painter is quick and easy. Read the following page for instructions (it's easy to use!):
