Can't explode text in AutoCAD for Mac 2014

Just stepped up from AutoCAD LT for Mac to AutoCAD for Mac 2014 and one of the very first things I wanted to do was to extrude text.  No go.  I've searched the community and find very helpful guidance for exploding text in order to then extrude the outlines, but this appears to work only in the Windows version of AutoCAD.  When I simply select some MText and attempt to use the Explode command in my Mac version, nothing happens.  Can anyone guide me on how to explode text in the Mac version for purposes of creating 3D text?  Thanks!

Thank you, maxim_k.  It's frustrating that I couldn't find this by searching the community.  I guess I need to be better at figuring out search terms.
