When I used the eyedropper tool in illustrator, it copied the attributes of the object that I clicked on with the dropper.

 

For example, when I'm making a square of some color, and I want it to have an opacity of x% and a blending mode of Multiply, all I have to do in illustrator is make a square, then eyedrop another shape with those attributes and possibly change the color (all of my stuff involves layers on layers of differently sized shapes with the same blending mode.)

 

In Affinity, is there a way to do this? The eyedropper copies the exact color on the canvas, and when I want to do my layering thing, I have to save the base color on the swatch, then change the blending mode and opacity manually from 100% normal --> 25% Screen or whatever every single time I make a new shape. The styles menu works kinda well, but it's not really the same speed/convenience for me.

 

Thanks for the help!

Welcome to the forum Alvf :)

 

It's not possible to copy style attributes using the Colour Picker tool but when you want to copy an object's style, select the object and go to Edit > Copy and then select the new object and go to Edit>Paste Style. The attributes will now be copied across :)
