I Didn't Know Google could do THAT: Paint Format

If you use Google Docs you've probably noticed that little paint roller icon next 
to the undo and redo arrow in the top right corner. 
If you are like me, you probably didn't know what they were for though.  
But y'all- I'm here to tell you about it and to tell you- you are going to LOVE it! 

So that icon is called the Format paint icon, and it allows you to set one area of text to the format you want (font style, size, type, color, bold, italics etc) and copy that format to other areas of text.

So how does it work? 
  1. Open a Google file.
  2. Select the text, range of cells, or object you want to copy the format of.
  3. In the toolbar, click Paint format paint format.
  4. Select what you want to paste the formatting onto.
  5. The formatting will change to be the same as the formatting you copied.


I love this because rather than trying to remember what font and size I used for something,
 I can just highlight a section and then apply it to the rest of my text. 
It's awesome on when formatting a table too!
