Format Painter - Text colour

Sep 27, 2016

Hi all

The format painter function is fabulous - saves alot of time if I want several items to have the same state...

However I am sure (until recently) the format would include the colour of text?.... however this seems to no longer be the case

ie if for example I have a number of text boxes being used to select different  layers, and I add a visited state to one of the text boxes which changes the colour of the text from White to Black... if I now use the Format painter to copy this state to all the text boxes, this function only adds the visited state, but the text colour of the visited state remains white....

Is there a way of copying the text colour as well?? otherwise the Format Painter function doesn't actually save much time as I have to go back and edit each text box!
