Injecting style of an object to another without changing size

Hi mates !

I was trying to inject the parameters of the white cabinet ( white front panel + black knobs ) into the red cabinet without making it change its build or dimensions. I tried transfer settings and excluding everything except classifications and custom properties, but that didn't do the trick for me !

Hopefully there could be a way to handle this !

Thanks

I checked the Element Transfer settings, but I do not see the main sizes as settings that you could be excluded from parameter transfer.

I agree. I think this would make a good UI wish. Copying the style but not the size would be really helpful. Personally, I'd like an option to either have (or not) a pop-up like the attached which is from Adobe Lightroom Classic when doing a pickup (eye-dropper) operation... to easily see what is going to be transferred and quickly change it as needed.

[Lightroom calls their operation Copy Settings and Paste Settings ... but it is more or less analogous to our eyedropper/syringe.]

Nothing like consistency.

With windows and doors you can ignore the size.
Not so with objects.

There is actually a new wish about Parameter Transfer settings, although it is about attributes transfer.
You guys can vote in that wish and also add you related wishes to the topic:
