How often do we forgo the use of paragraph or character styles in InDesign? Then we find ourselves selecting text, changing the font, changing the family member to bold and finally altering the color. To do this repeatedly can take a good amount of time!
For a project with a limited amount of text, one that really doesn’t require the use of styles, there is another way to quickly format text!
How To Sample Format with the InDesign Eyedropper Tool
Once you have text in your layout that is formatted properly, a click of the eyedropper tool on this text will “fill” the eyedropper with the formatting specifications applied.
The eyedropper is now ready to “squirt” this formatting onto any other text you wish. One click will reformat just a character, a double-click will reformat a word, and so on.
Applying a font change, font style change, point size change and color change can be done with just one click!
