One of the most powerful tools in Microsoft Office is the apply formatting feature. This feature basically lets you define the right format once and apply the same to series of objects in the rest of the presentation or any other file. While working with large presentations or just working on slides for a long time, if you ever need to make a change in the style and want it applied across multiple content this is the tool to use.

Here are the steps to apply formatting

Step (1): Select the content you want to copy the formatting from

Step (2): Go to the Clipboard group under Home ribbon.
