Formatting multiple cards with the same conditions simultaneiously

Esteemed colleagues,

I am hoping I am missing something simple:

Whether it is multiple columns in a table visual, or multiple card visuals in a given view, these columns or cards, when they need to be conditionally formatted follow the same rules:  Alert = Make the box/card RED, Caution = Make the box/card YELLOW, Normal = Make the box/card GREEN.

Right now, based on what we can see, each card or column must be ponderously set one by one.  

Is there some way to select multiple columns in a table or group/highlight a set of cards such that a single standard conditional formatting can be applied to all of the columns/cards selected at one time?  This would be a HUGE timesaver.  

Please let me know.

 

Thank you for your time

@mjmowle ,

 

I'm afraid conditional formatting measure can only be applied on one column. So conditional formatting is not the tools, have you tried bookmark and button?

Not tested. But check if the format painter copies it

1/2 way there!  The format painter does appear to carry the conditional formatting from card to card, so that is a huge help.  Thanks!

 

Now to complete the matter, what would be cool is if, in the drop down for conditional formatting for columns of data if you could do something to pik multiple columns at one time for identical formatting.  The paint brush does NOT work for that.
