Text style copy & paste ( like in google docs, it is called the Paint Format tool) I do not want to create a new style every single time I am working with text, sometimes I just want to copy and paste a style! I know this is more word processor based but it's such a nice option to have, hands down useful. There is a reason text editors have styles and paint format/format paint (Google Docs/Word) options. And it seems like it would be super easy to implement. I don't want to clutter my global text styles with two-three pieces of text that I want to be the same style. Just make a button like those word processors. Story editor - The ability to go through text and copy and paste parts of it out would be really helpful... Or better yet let me link to a google doc somehow. I know this is a bit of a stretch but hey, thought I'd throw it out there. I have to copy and paste text a lot and just creating a text filler block and being able to update that outside the page would be nice. Table updates - This needs a lot of work to really be that useful, but minor things like highlighting the cell you are in would be nice, adding a checkbox to link stroke on outside & inside stroke would be nice (even though it would only save me a few clicks I would like the option), the ability to right click on row > resize all rows to the currently selected row would be nice... Actually is there even a way to alter all rows or columns? It wasn't very clear to me if there was... Also it wasn't super clear how to affect the whole table at once, like I get I can select all the cells by clicking in the first cell and dragging to the last cell but if I had a very large table this could be a problem. Having a global table option and control would be nice because what if I want to hide all inner table dividers? Also having some default table styles would be nice, just a few basic colors which I can edit later because a lot of tables have different colored rows to make them easier to read. Including one or two different table formats with a global color option for alternate rows would be very handy. Having the ability to make nice tables would really really be amazing. Perhaps I missed something though and these options are available elsewhere. Also headers on tables would be great. Would be nice after some of those updates are fixed: Footnotes and endnotes. While they have not become a big issue yet, they would be very nice to have as I aim to be creating a manual down the line and don't want to have to work this in manually. I work as a book publisher and I know Publisher isn't actually built for that but it's been really helpful and I think working on a few of these additions would help my workflow considerably.
I don't want to create a new style when I copying and pasting text around in one textbox and would love it if I had a button like Paint format in google docs so I could grab some text in a section of text and click the format button and then drag it over other text to apply that format to other text, it would be nice if the colors, font, and formatting carried over so I could quickly format sections of text the same but still be flexible enough to change the format later without creating styles I don't know if I'll use. And yes copy and paste fx or style does not work in this case, it doesn't even show as an option as I'm not using either FYI. So tl;dr in one text frame it would nice if I could grab one styled text and apply it to other text in the same frame without creating a whole preset for something I don't know I'll use. This is for testing how different fonts look together in paragraph form. Google docs has something called Paint Format, Word has something called Format Painter that works the same. It's a super-fast way to make mock-ups which I can then decide to make a style if I choose.
