I have been trying to use multi-text, then CTL-V to insert text from a Word document. It seems to work. I can then work through the multi-text properties to affect the text height and column width.
But the peculiar thing that I do not understand is after some of the multi text areas were selected, and scaled on the paper space to a wider width (with the locked aspect ratio), checking the properties still says it is 1/8" text, but in reality is obviously is not. I cannot figure a direct way to click on the various boxes of text and see data to indicate which ones were scaled and how much they were scaled.
