How do you quickly copy text styles like in Adobe Illustrator with the eye dropper tool

Recommended Posts

Is there a way in Affinity Designer to quickly copy a text style? In Illustrator it was fairly easy to do that with the eye dropper too since that worked both as a colour picker as well as a text style picker. I just want to be able to select a text block and quickly apply the style and format of another text block. I can't seem to find a quick way in Affinity Designer.


Thanks!

Hi Varlien and Welcome to the Forums,

 

Not currently possible to paste text styles, it's been requested a few times so could come in a future update.

 

You could always style a line of text, create a text style and reuse as and when needed.

 

Another option, as you can copy a style from an object and paste it to text, you could style one of the shapes, then use ⌘ (cmd) + C to copy and ⇧ (shift) + ⌘ (cmd) + V (CTRL + SHIFT + V if you are using Windows) to paste the same attributes to another object.

Oh cool thanks! I like the last option. Didn't know about that shortcut! Thanks very much! :)
