In LT 2009 where do I find the setting to adjust the width factor for a selected portion of Mtext that I want to edit?
In LT07 it was on the tool bar at the top but I cannot find it on or in the ribbon. What am I missing?
"Width factor" is on the right end of the mtext editor's bar in '08.
"Defined width" is for mtext, if this what you're asking about, can be set via the properties palette or by dragging the right end of the ruler in the mtext editor.
For Mtext I usually use a width factor of 1 for most occurrences. Every once in a while the text will not fit in a particular area so I adjust the width factor which compresses the letters a bit.
But LT 2009 isn't letting me do that.
Nor will it give me the "fit" option for mtext justification. It's evidently not there.
At least that would allow me to drag the grips and make the errant piece of mtext fit the space.
