Description Karl 2014-03-26 09:00:19 UTC
It might be usefull to enhance the functionality of this tool,

to transfer the format of one cell to "some" other cells if they are not connected directly

Pressing STRG / CRTL should enable to hold the function active until released

One for you Karl.
Comment 2 Gerhard Weydt 2018-08-13 23:06:13 UTC
The description of the desired functionality is incomplete, if not defective: what does "to some'other' cells" mean, why has the connection of cells - directly or indirectly - anything to do with the function of the brush, namely copying the format. If you don't provide precise examples, I do not understand the problem.
Moreover, double-clicking the brush keeps the format settings for every cell you click on afterwards until you click on the brush again, so I see no need for another key combination to do the same job, and then, as I believe, in a less understandable way: who should know what Ctrl+Brush will do after some other clicks, and if it works only immediately after setting the brush, then the solution of once setting the brush by double-clicking is easier understandable and already working.
I will set the status to "resolved/notabug" then, to remove it from the bug list.
