Clipboard, Format Painter

Unread post by Ga Bowen » Wed Jun 10, 2020 3:11 pm

I import a lot of files from various sources into H+M.

The current method of copying and pasting a style requires a new copy function after every paste. This also means you can't copy between topics.

I would like to see the ability to copy a style and then have it remain on the clipboard to paste as many times as necessary. Maybe use Ctrl-SHIFT-V for this?

Hi Gareth,

Double-click the format painter. Then it's sticky, also between topics. Another click turns it off again. 8)
