Have a formatting Paint Brush to make replicating formatting faster

Hi, I'm becoming a heavy user of the Documentation Tools known as containers and comments. However, I am currently finding it tedious that I have to alter their settings individually or alternatively have to copy and paste a container or comment that has the formatting I want to replicate the formatting of.

 

I would like to be able to document the containers and comments quickly and then assess how each of them will be assigned colour and fonts to make the readability of the End to End workflow easier. I find in the Microsoft Office products the copy formatting paint brush is really good for this, it would be great if Alteryx could offer a similar function. 

 

It's not a world changer in terms of functionality but it would improve the user experience and the speed at which I could produce a tidy ETL workflow using Alteryx.

I have a workflow with templates for each comment/container that I frequently use. I open it whenever I'm going to be doing development so I can copy/paste from that templates workflow into my development workflow.

 

I'd love to be able to click the comment tool in the ribbon and have it offer a list of user-formatted templates.
