Using Fill Format mode

The sixth icon at the top of the Styles and Formatting window activates the Fill Format mode. Use Fill Format to apply a style to many different areas quickly without having to go back to the Styles and Formatting window and double-click every time. This method is useful for formatting many scattered paragraphs, words, or other items with the same style, and it may be easier to use than making multiple selections first and then applying a style to all of them.

  1. Open the Styles and Formatting window and select a style.
  2. Click the Fill Format Mode icon Image:FillFormatIcon.png.
  3. To apply a paragraph, page, or frame style, hover the mouse over the paragraph, page, or frame and click. To apply a character style, hold down the mouse button while selecting the characters. Clicking on a word applies the character style for that word.
  4. Repeat step 3 until you made all the changes for that style.
  5. To quit the Fill Format mode, click the icon again or press the Esc key.
Image:documentation_caution.png When this mode is active, a right-click anywhere in the document undoes the last Fill Format action. Be careful not to accidentally right-click and mistakenly undo actions you want to keep.
