Copying a color¶
There are several ways to apply the same style to multiple objects:
- Selecting multiple objects: select all the objects whose color you want to change (hold Shift and click, or drag a selection box around them), then open the Fill and Stroke dialog, select a color. It will be applied to all selected objects automatically.
- Use the Dropper tool: select an object, then activate the Dropper tool by clicking on its icon , then click on the canvas, on an area where it has the color that you want to apply. The selected object’s color will change accordingly.
- Copy the complete style of an object to apply it to another object: select the object, copy it to the clipboard with Ctrl + C, then select the second object and paste only the style with Ctrl + Shift + V. This not only copies the fill and stroke color, but also the stroke width and style, a text’s font style and any patterns or gradients.
