Transfer Graphic Properties


Problem description

Microsoft Office products have the ‘Paintbrush’ function to transfer all graphic properties of an object to other objects.

FrameMaker does not offer any comparable functions.

Function description

The script transfers the graphic properties of the selected object to one or more other objects.

This occurs in two steps:

  • To copy, select the menu item ‘Graphic Properties: Copy’.
  • To apply, select the desired objects and select the menu item ‘Graphic Properties: Apply’.

  • FrameMaker 6.0 or higher
  • FrameScript/ElmScript 4.1 or higher


The script works with structured and unstructured documents.

Both commands are available in the BasePack menu and also in the context menu of graphic objects.
