Cancel format copying

You can copy the formats of a selected item to another item or to several other items.

The format painter function remains active, for example, if you change a model's size of appearance (zoom), move the display area (scroll), or select an item in the Explorer tree. However, you can cancel the format painter function.


Each of the following procedures cancels the format painter function:

  • Press the Esc key.
  • Right-click.
  • Click in the modeling area.
  • Switch to another module, e.g., switch to the Explorer module.
  • Open and close models.

The format painter function is canceled.
