I love the format painter tool! It’s the fastest and easiest way to copy formatting from one word/paragraph/object to another. I now love the Animation Painter tool in PowerPoint 2010 just as much.
Complex animations can take a lot of time to set up. Now with the Animation Painter tool, you can copy animation from one object to another. Simply click the object with the animation you want to copy, click the Animation Painter tool and finally, click the object to which you want to apply the animation.
