Feature Description:

QuarkXPress 2015 offers capability to pick the formats (style attributes) from selected text and apply to text elsewhere  in the document.

• A new Style tool/button called Format Painter is introduced on Measurement palette that is available on Home and  Character tabs for selection.

o Click on the tool first to change cursor to Format picker mode. This step will copy the formatting from selected text  already. 

o Now make a selection of target text to apply formatting. 

o The tool will have sticky behavior, so you can apply formatting as many text selections as you want. 

o You can press Esc key or click back on Format Painter 

o If the source text selection includes paragraph ending, it will apply both character and paragraph formatting to target  text selection.
