It would be neat if there was a format painter button somewhere on the toolbar that acts like the format painter in a word processor, this format painter would copy all formatting information from one object (probably a FP control/indicator) to another.
Click on the first object, click on format painter and then click on the second item and viola! the formatting is copied over.
An example of this is setting the numeric format (which takes quite a few clicks to set the significant digits etc). I know its possible to edit properties of multiple similar objects, but this is a bit different.
Maybe this would work on the BD as well?
I think it would probably be possible to do this with JKI's Right Click Framework, looping over all the properties of and setting the destination the same as the target.
