    As far as I can tell, no. However, if they are all in the same style (or if you can make them so) you can just change the font for that style and they will all change with it ...

    Leastways, you can't change the font for all at the same time.

    You can select several textboxes at once, however - select one and click on it's border (the marquee will change when it's selected) then hold down shift and click on the borders of the others rquired.

    Not that I know of, but I'm not the best person to ask this - I never seem to be able to think of the keywords necessary to get the MSKB to give me the right answers!

    Hopefully someone who can get the MSKB to talk to them will be able to give you some pointers.

    Hi xtreme,

    You can select mutiple text boxes by clicking the first one, then holding down the 'shift' key whilst selecting the others. This won't let you change the font of them all at the same time though. That would be too helpful! One way round this is to select the first one, change the font, then select each box in turn and press 'F4'. This will repeat the last action (change font) to each box, one at a time.

    I'm not quite sure what is happening here, but the next time you want to post a question and then turn around and answer yourself posing as someone else, you should probably log off and back on as them first! <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15>

    Although I may be grinning, if this is some sort of game you are playing I do not appreciate you wasting my valuable time in this manner.

    Just for the record, I really hope that you actually needed the information on the multiple cut/copy question - for the time I spent on you I could have answered at least 2 questions for someone that actually needed information <img src=/S/exclamation.gif border=0 alt=exclamation width=15 height=15>

    Oh, and I do have a very good suspicion of who you are. If I am correct, well you'll know...

    Beryl,

    Not sure what happened on this thread. Since you seemed to be interested in helping solve the problem, I decided to respond to you.

    There were a couple of posts on the lounge that could provide the basis for a solution.

    1. a macro stub from Chris Green back in March on the Word lounge that loops thru all text boxes but the action would need to be changed:
    Dim tb

    For Each tb In ActiveDocument.Shapes
    With tb.TextFrame
    .TextRange.Text = ""
    End With
    Next

    2. a MSKB article on changing the language ID of all text boxes in a powerpoint presentation (don't know who found it but I saved it) - so this loops thru text boxes also
    See Microsoft Knowledge Base .Article Q245468 http://support.microsoft.com/directory/art...B;EN-US;Q245468
