In the Object tab of the Layout Editor there is a band named Figure Presets. Figure presets copy formatting from one object and apply it to another.

When the Add button is pressed, the current selection is compared to its default settings, and those differences are stored in the preset.  When the Apply button is pressed, the selection will have those differences applied to them.  Multiple presets can be applied in a single operation.  Presets can be merged by applying them to a common selection, and then creating a new Figure Preset from the result.
