Selectively copy and paste formatting attributes in PowerPoint with PPT Productivity's Advanced Format Painter. Perhaps you want to copy PowerPoint fill color and font without the outline color? Or copy all PowerPoint color and font attributes without changing the size of shapes?

Simply click the object to copy. Next, click the Advanced Format Painter feature button. A popup selection panel will display. Nominate from the selection panel the attributes you want to copy and paste (for example copy shape outline style and shape size).

Once you have selected the attributes to copy and paint, there's also an option to turn on a Multi Painter feature to paste multiple updates - even across different slides and presentations. Once you have finished selecting attributes, click ok and then click the object(s) to paint.

Select from any combination of the following attributes to copy and paint:

  • Position: Nominate specifically for horizontal or vertical position anchors. Options to choose left/ center/ right or top/ middle/ bottom alignment (to align shapes of varying sizes to the same anchor point across multiple slides). Just nominate 'position' when formatting identical objects across multiple slides.
  • Size: Copy and paste overall size of an object, or choose specifically the height, width, or rotation of the object to copy
  • Fill: Copy and paste the color, solid or pattern and transparency in PowerPoint easily
  • Line: Copy and paste line color, pattern, transparency, dash type, style/ width, begin arrow or end arrow style
  • Textbox: Copy and paste the textbox margins, font, horizontal or vertical alignment, text direction, wrapping and paragraph format
  • Table: Copy and paste the column width and/ or row height (note that if you have the fill, line, and textbox buttons checked, you can choose to copy paste all table format attributes)
  • Angles & Curves: Copy angles and curves from shapes with adjustments - including chevrons, arrows, pentagons, triangles, rectangles (including rectangles with rounded corners), to make angles or corners the same
  • Animation: Copy animations from selected shape and choose to either replace or append the animation on target shapes
  • Other: Copy and paste shape type, chart formats, shadow/glow/other Effects, as well as the same chevron angles or rounded corner radius
The Advanced Format Painter makes it easy to quickly update formatting across a presentation. You can also use it to copy formatting from objects across different presentations. Magic!
