Using the Format Brush
|Contents | Search | Support | Jarte Home|
The Format Brush is a special tool used to quickly and easily apply font and/or paragraph formatting within a document. For example, suppose you have written a manuscript that includes chapter headings for each chapter. But the chapter headings use the same font size as the rest of the text, and you have decide you would rather the chapter headings have a larger font size and underlining. The Format Brush makes this task less tedious by using these steps:
One Shot - Jarte exits its Format Brush mode (i.e., the mouse cursor returns to a normal pointer) after the brush's first use.
Continuous - Jarte stays in Format Brush mode until either the Esc key is pressed, Format Brush (One Shot) is selected, or you begin editing the document.
Note that single clicking an individual word with the Format Brush formats that word. Selecting (highlighting) text with the Format Brush formats the selected text.
Font Formatting Only - The Format Brush only applies font formatting characteristics to the text the brush is used on.
Paragraph Formatting Only - The Format Brush only applies paragraph formatting characteristics to the text the brush is used on.
Font and Paragraph Formatting - The Format Brush only applies both font and paragraph formatting characteristics to the text the brush is used on.
The Format Brush can be quickly reestablished with the formatting characteristics from its previous use by using feature Repeat Previous Brush. Note that Repeat Previous Brush works with the highlight marker as well.
