Hi Polly!

Are you working with Storyline 2? Does this happen in any file that you are working in or just this file? 

In Slide View, the clipboard includes a special feature called the Format Painter. It lets you quickly copy formatting from one object to another, including text formatting, fill, outline, shadow, and other effects. Here's how:

  1. Select the object whose formatting you want to copy.
  2. Go to the Home tab and click Format Painter. Your cursor will change into an arrow with a paintbrush to let you know that the Format Painter is active.
  3. Click the item where you want to apply the same formatting. The formatting gets copied, and the Format Painter automatically turns off.

Tip: When you double-click the Format Painter button, it'll remain active until you turn it off. This lets you apply the same formatting to multiple objects. To turn theFormat Painter off, just click it again or press the Esc key on your keyboard.
