One click to sneak the style

What is Quick Capture? It is AppleTrans way of stylesheet, so to say. It is not fancy at all like that you find in those high-end word processors, but it lets you style the text in a very quick action.

As the name suggests, the basic idea is to copy the style attributes from a text, and apply them to the current selection. Quick Capture works in document and corpus views (except accessory views). You can capture styles from a different view.

If you have a pre-formatted text sample, just open it next to the working document and use it as a stylesheet. The operation is quite easy. Just select the text you want to style, and click the text with styles you want to capture while holding command key.

Hi, there
I was trying to "sneak the style" on my AppleTrans document and wasn't working as I expected. Could you please elaborate on this process a bit further? Much appreciated.

Could you check a few things in your setup?

• You are running Mac OS X 10.4.x
If not, which version?

• You have AppleTrans 1.2 installed
If you have older version still left in your system, make sure you run the latest.

• You checked "Quick capture..." option
Make sure this option being tuned on.
