Container Format Painter

It would be oh so nice to be able to copy a container's properties and paste those formatting options onto other containers.  It could be accomplished through a Paint Brush icon on CTRL-Copy and Right Click to paste format.  either way it would save setting the Color (multi-step select), Margin, transparency.

 

Cheers,

Love this!!!  I spend lots of seconds (in the Alteryx world, seconds are a lot of time!) configuring my containers with the same settings.

I opened up a similar ticket idea a few years ago - :( maybe if everyone votes on either or!

@MarqueeCrew Like the format painter in Powerpoint! Couldn't agree more with you, this would save us a lot. Also i would like to see the option to set container size to a certain container, would save me a lot of time making comment fields bigger just to make my workflow look better.

This is a great idea! I'd love to see this for Comment tools as well.
