Now, mimicking the settings of one object to the other is just a click away. The eyedropper functionality, which was first introduced in Adobe Illustrator to copy the color, fill and stroke from one object to another, was an overnight success. Immediately, the same feature is used in Adobe InDesign, which helps the designers much better than the former. To copy and apply the style from one parent object to the children objects do the following. Select the children elements which you want to affect. Choose the eyedropper tool and click on the parent object. You can choose to carry on the same process by double-clicking on the eye dropper tool in InDesign. An options box appears with various selection and de-selection options.
