Format Painting

Want to quickly apply the format of a section of your document to another section? Just use your mouse to highlight the section (a headline, a paragraph, or a word) that has the desired format. Click the Format Painter icon on the standard toolbar, and use your mouse to highlight the section you want to format. The selection is instantly reformatted.

This easy, time-saving solution is a good way to make sure formatting is consistent when you're expanding a document that was created using a heavily formatted template. You can also use this method when you're adding to a document someone else created.
