In Corel draw when you select an object and apply a colour or move/resize the object you can then select the next object and hit Ctrl+r and repeat this last action to the newly selected object.
Is there such a function in Illo CS4?
The color of the last object is always repeated but other modifications like move and rescaling is Command (Control) D
Nailed it again Wade.
You must be the noob angel LOL
