Is it possible to change text size on a specfic layer. I have a layer that text is too small to read and wish to change all the text using one command, ie. present text size 10 m, change to 20 m height.

Hi, This will only work if all the objects on the layer are text. The Land Desktop tools I would use are [Utilities][Selection Set] SS from the command line to select all the text on the layer.

Hi Laurie, Actually, in the properties window, you can select what type of object you want to edit out of all the selected objects. There is a pull down list at the top that will let you select any of the object types selected.
