Nerd Alert: Format Painter
Definitely closer to the nerd side, but I just finished updating an old PowerPoint lesson for Cornerstone tonight. I always knew that Excel had a “Format Painter” button, and I’ve enjoyed using it, but I never even thought that PowerPoint would have it too. It’s perfect for quickly updating a ton of slides that should have the same formatting.
As a keyboard computer user (as opposed to the mousers and menu-lovers), I’m always looking for the shortcut key for these cool things. Format Painter has two: Control+Shift+C to copy and Control+Shift+V to paste. Check out lots more shortcut keys for Microsoft products.
