Adobe InDesign CC - Eyedropper Tool

The Eyedropper tool is an easy way to apply formatting from one object or text to the other.

Select the Eyedropper tool from the toolbar and click any formatting or style that you want. You will notice that the Eyedropper which showed an empty icon, now shows a partially filled one. You can now take this partially filled Eyedropper and apply it on to any text or image.

Select Icon

In this example, the text style under the “Get in Touch” section is selected and the same is applied for the text under the “Social Media” section.

You can also customize what styles the eyedropper should copy by double-clicking the Eyedropper icon in the toolbar. This opens a dialog box where you can select which properties of the item to eyedrop and which ones to exclude.
