Copy/Paste Properties for inline text or span text

Hey I am looking for copy/paste properties for a selected segment of a whole text box.
For example in Form Fields that have required fields, ie. “First Name *”
The asterisks I want to use a bolder font, and a brighter colour. I can change this manually, but then I need to apply that same bright bold style to about 12 other fields with the required asterisks.

Copy Paste Properties only works when I select the whole text box, but not when I select only the asterisks. I even tried copying the whole asterisk and pasting it in as new text, but it simply reverts to the default style of the whole text box.

I’ve tried the Paste Over Selection (Cmd + Shift + V) But that doesn’t work either.

Anybody know how to do this?
