  2. Click the Animations tab.
  3. Click the Animation Painter button.

    Single-click the Animation Painter button to apply copied animation once. Double-click the Animation Painter button to apply a copied animation multiple times.

    The mouse pointer changes to indicate the Animation Painter is on.

    If you double-clicked the Animation Painter button in Step 3, click the Animation Painter button again to deactivate it, or press Esc.
