Applies the formatting of 'template' to 'text'

Description:

For applying a single format (color, style, etc.) to a field (either with a calc or an auto-enter replacement calc), regardless of how the user formats the text.

Idea is to define the overriding style in another field using FileMaker controls, rather than hard-coding the style into your calc.
