If you choose Essentials,which is the default workspacewhen you first install InDesign,then you'll see it's made up ofproperties, pages, and CC libraries.Of course even if you're runningany other kind of workspace,you could always open the properties panelfrom the window menuand make it part of your workspace,or just have it floating here,and it's useful to try out.Now the properties panel doesn't have a menu.It can be resized vertically, but not horizontally. The Properties panel was introduced in version 14.0. From your title you appear to be on an earlier version. New and enhanced features Latest release of InDesign I think if you just update to the latest version of InDesign you should be fine. Upgrading is free and easy to do from the Adobe Creative Cloud app.

Did you know that with the Eyedropper tool in InDesign you can pick up text specifications including font face, size, tracking, color, and paragraph settings and apply them to multiple text areas? It works much like the Format Painter in Microsoft Word.

When applying the Eyedropper tool to text, you can either: a) highlight the text that has the appearance you want to copy and then apply the characteristics elsewhere, or b) select the text to which you want to apply new formatting, and then point to a piece of text that has the desired appearance. Each is done a little differently. Here’s how you do it:

To copy and paste the formatting from one area to another:

  1. Click the Eyedropper tool.
  2. Click or press and drag the text that is formatted with the attributes you want to copy.

    When “loaded” with attributes, the Eyedropper reverses direction and has a black tip. When you move this loaded cursor over any text, you will see an I-beam text cursor appear alongside the loaded Eyedropper.

  3. Press and drag to highlight the text you want to change.

    The text changes. If you have set the options to alter the whole paragraph, it will do so. (See important things to know, below.) Note that as long as they eyedropper tool is loaded, you can continue to select more text and apply the formatting.

Note: With this method, you can copy and paste type attributes from one document to another.

The selected text takes on the attributes of the text you just clicked. If you have set the options to alter the whole paragraph, it will do so. (See important things to know, below.)
