Hey there,

Can you elaborate a bit on what this is? I'd love to pass this idea along, with a few more details! Thanks!

one of the most useful tools in Microsoft Office is the format painter - the brush that lets you copy the text format from one place to another by "painting it."  I can't tell you how long I have been using SnagIt,,, maybe a decade?  and was enthused when you were one of the first apps to adopt the "right click" metaphor.  My suggestion is to add the format painter to that function, just like it appears in Microsoft Office. thanks for listening.

Hey Andersone! Could you maybe upload a screenshot of what you mean? I'm still not sure I understand. Thank you!

Ah, I see! That's an interesting idea for an addition - I appreciate that screenshot.

As a workaround for the time being, maybe you could create a "quick style" so you're able to use the same format over and over again by saving it to your toolbar? This tutorial will provide more information. Let me know if that works for you!
