While we are on the subject of formatting, did you know that you can apply formatting to multiple objects at once?
1. Simply CTRL-Click each desired object to add them to the selection. (or drag out a box-select)
2. Right-click on any selected item and select "Format Objects".
From here you will be able to apply formatting to all objects. Keep in mind that Crystal will only give you formatting options that all objects have "in common". For instance, if you have both Date and Number objects selected, the Format Objects window WON'T give you specific type-formatting options.
This is a nice way to easily change the Font or Style of many objects at once. Try it!
