Creating or applying varied font styles to select words
I am formatting portions of my text using the varied formats shown below. The Format Painter works great for an entire text object, but I am having difficulty applying a style to just a few words. The context menu that popups up for font settings when a portion of text is selected doesn't seem to work that well (perhaps that is user error).
In any case I would like to be able to apply the style from selected words in one text object to selected words in another text object. The Format Painter options do not seem to work for this purpose. This is causing me to reapply changes manually repeatedly. Would like to see something akin to Word's font styles in a future version. Is there an easy way to accomplish this?
