    Default Make it possible to edit all mtext properties from general properties dialog box

    Summary: Some designers change mtext properties by doubleclicking and editing the individual text objects. These cannot then be changed globally. Must be changed one by one. Very slow procedure sometimes.

    Description: It would be better if any property change for mtext or other object can be modified globally (in the general "properties" box, not the individual mtext box. In this way all mtext objects on any layer can be modified at once, instead of having to do it one by one.

    Are you referring to MTEXT format overrides (within the MTEXT) being the problem?
    If so, I agree, it would be nice to set them back by style using the OOTB properties dialog.

    There is a STRIPMTEXT lisp routine out there, that works nicely for this.

    However, if you're just talking about modifying MTEXT, this can be done by selecting everything and filtering out the MTEXT.
    Then you can globally change whatever you want.
