To keep it simple, the transfer Properties tool does just that - it transfers or copies properties such as fill color, line color and font style to another line of text or shape.
Let's start with a line of text to show you how easy this is to use.
Open up Silhouette Studio and type out a line of text. As you start typing out the text, you'll get the default font style...Boooooring.
TIP: Now type out another line in a separate text box. This is how I design almost all of my text-based designs - everything gets it's own text box. It make editing and designing much easier when you can manipulate everything on it's own. (Just a little mini lesson there for you).Select the first line of text and pick a new font style from the Text Style window.
Also fill it with a color or pattern or gradient using one of the three Fill tools along the top tool bar. You can see here, in this example, I selected font "Bauhaus 93" and filled with pink and gave the line both a green color and a weight.
First, select the second line of text. Then click the Transfer Properties tool icon along the top tool bar. Your mouse icon will become a little "color picker". Use it to click on the first line of text..anywhere on the first line of text.
This also works for shapes....
Here I have three bunnies. The first I filled with one of the default patterns from the Fill Patterns tool (in blue along the top tool bar below).
And of course on the third bunny I transferred the properties from bunny #1 by simply clicking it with bunny #3 selected.
