Paste FX & Paste Style

Recommended Posts

When I try to use these Paste Commands in Windows 7 but they are both faded out on the drop down menu and also when I try to use Alt + Shift + V I get taken to the Zoom pull down menu.

Hi jrkay,

These seem to work for me, they will be disabled if you don't have any fx/style on your clipboard.

If you apply some fx to a shape and copy it they should become enabled.

Thanks for pointing out the shortcut however, it seems ALT+Z is taking priority which is for the zoom menu, I've logged this

Hi Jon 

I applied FX to a shape and tried to copy it to another shape using Alt + Shift + V and that didn't work at all either.

Not having any issues with that here still unfortunately, any chance you can create a video demonstrating the issue?

I'm rubbish at video, the first part shows me choosing the wrong tool first of all but hopefully the second part shows it not happening. After I had done the vid and come out of it, there was a remark came up that the command was not implemented.

Hi jrkay,

So the star shape in your file has no filter effects applied, that is why you can't paste onto the rectangle above it with Paste FX (using the shortcut or otherwise)

You can copy the fill/stroke with "Paste Style", which is CTRL+SHIFT+V

If you add some filter effects to the object you should see Paste FX working also

I'm sorry it still doesn't work like that for me, pasting style of the cog CTRL + Shift + V on my document to the black square only produces a duplicate copy of the cog.

However I gave a style to the cog and copied that style to the square with Alt + Shift + V and it did work as you said.
