How to use the format painter

September 28, 2021

Take WPS Writer as an example here.

We need to use WPS Office to open the file first.

Select the content that has the formatting we want to copy. And then click Home, then click Format Painter.

After the Format Painter icon appears, click and drag the mouse cursor on the text that needs to be formatted.

Now you have successfully used Format Painter to format text!

P.S. If you need to use the Format Painter continuously, double-click Format Painter to apply the needed format to different content in multiple locations.

To be office specialists, you could learn how to use WPS Office online in WPS Academy.
