Formatting multiple text boxes?

P: n/a
I am new to Access. I see how to use Format Painter and can select a
field to format, but how do you format multiple text boxes after you
have selected the box you want to copy format. I have to keep going
back to the original text box and selecting boxes one by one.

Thanks for any help.

ctrl-click to select the ones you want, then show the properties window
and change them all at once.

Simply Double-click on the Format Painter toolbutton. Then you can
click on any or all of the controls (one at a time) you wish to
re-format. Single-click on the Brush to stop.
