Copying Styles: Paste Attributes

This lets you copy attributes (such as line pattern or fill color) between objects. It is a quick way of applying multiple attributes to an object.

The square has a specific color, shadow, line and fill style. Copying it and then pasting its attributes on to the circle in the middle, results in the circle to the right.

  1. Select the object from which you wish to copy the attributes.
  2. Copy the selection to the clipboard. ("Edit" > "Copy", or "Ctrl + C".)
  3. Select the object(s) to which you want to apply the attributes.
  4. Choose "Edit" > "Paste format/attributes", or "Ctrl + Shift + A".

The object remains on the clipboard until overwritten by a cut or copy operation. This lets you repeat paste attributes as many times as required.
