Dear colleagues,

I wonder why the command format painter doesn't work in Word 2003. I thought this is just my installation, but now I changed my PC and it's the same. When I click on the format painter icon and then move to the sentence, the paintbrush turns into a normal arrow and I cannot paint anything. Sometimes it works but most of the times it doesn't.

I found some messages like this on other forums but never a solution.


Does this happen also to you?


thanks in advance

Noe

Select first, then press the paintbrush Mar 14, 2005

You must select the text with the style you want to copy -- it can be just one letter.

Then you go to the paintbrush and the cursor will change to a paintbrush when you come back to the text. Select the text you want to apply the copied style to.

Bonne chance!
Esther, qui a Office 2003 et qui n'a aucun mal à copier les styles

no idea why this happens just to me Mar 20, 2005

Hello Esther,

thanks for your answer, I know how it should work and how it worked before I changed to Word 2003. But I see that not everybody has this problem.

Regards

Noe

It will often solve the problem, whatever it is.
Best,
