Like in Illustrator, we should have the ability in Photoshop to copy formatting of other text using the eyedropper tool (or something similar/new)

InDesign's Eye Dropper Tool can do this as well.

It would be great to have this in Photoshop!

... to develop large reports on Photoshop.

By @Shatakshi1293

 

 

If you need to develop large reports, use InDesign, never Photoshop. Photoshop is primarily an image editor with some text support. InDesign has pages, margins, bleeds, text flow across pages, page numbering, and an Eyedropper Tool to copy text formatting, for example.

 

InDesign, Photoshop, Illustrator, and Word all have Paragraph and Character styles. Using them for text formatting is a best practice. Don't use local formatting, especially in large reports.

Hi

You can use the character styles panel to save and apply such styles

However, Photoshop really is the wrong tool for such work whereas InDesign is made for it. You can easily link images from Photoshop, graphical elements from Illustrator with format your text to fit with both.
