    Format Painter

    OliverChen

      Summary

      Format Painter

      Product

      FileMaker Pro

      Version

      12 and earlier

      Operating system version

      Windows

      Description of the issue

      The feature of Format Painter is very limited. You highlight an object, select Format Painter, and apply to another single object. It would be nice if I select a chosen format and then be able to apply to multiple objects of the same nature.

               Hi Oliver,

               You can do it. There are many ways but i suggest this :

               Select one object that contain the format to replicate.

          Double-clic on painter button to lock it.

               Then, clic on all objects you want to modify (you can also draw a rectangle with you mouse to select contiguous objects).

               I hope it will help.

               Bye, fred
