Video – Word – Format Painter

My first video shows you how to use Format Painter.

It still astonishes me how many people don't know it exists, even though it sits there with the Cut, Copy and Paste buttons which are used so regularly.  Most of them tell me that they've seen it but always assumed it paints a colour onto text or similar.

What it actually does is magic!  It copies formatting of any piece of text and applies that formatting to any text you highlight.  It's my first port of call when I'm doing a numbered document.  Someone always copy/pastes something into it and messes my numbering up.  But because I know about Format Painter I don't have to spend ages fiddling around with it.

I do hope you find it as useful as I do!  Everyone raves about how brilliant it is once I've shown it to them.  Enjoy!
