8.0 version

copy-character-format

Arguments: window

Sets the global variable *copied-character-format* to a character-format instance reflecting the character format of the character just before the current text cursor position in window. window must be an instance of a text-edit-pane (which is a superclass of rich-edit-pane). It cannot be a text-edit-window or a rich-edit control (apply window to a rich-edit control to get a value suitable as an argument to this function).

The Edit | Copy Format command on the rich edit menubar calls this function. (Note: that command does not appear on the Allegro CL Edit menu.)

See cg-rich-text.htm for information about rich text editing in Common Graphics.
