Let me reword my question for better understanding:
I have multiple histograms created using distribution platform for continuous variables. Is there a keyboard shortcut available to broadcast the "format column" command for summary statistics in distribution platform?
I too find the broadcast of formats (in the distribution and other platforms) confusing. There are options as to what columns to apply formats to which (at least on the distribution) seems to work if the "broadcast" checkbox is not checked. If the "broadcast" box is checked then checking additional columns to apply the formats to doesn't work (at least I don't think so). How to broadcast to additional distribution outputs within the same window I have not been able to figure out.
