Changing text size and serif/sans serif of multiple objects

cemccourseware shared this question 3 years ago

I keep running into problems when I try to either change a pile of text objects from sans serif to serif, or if I try to change a pile of text objects from small to medium font size, for example.

It always works on the first object, but then I need to save and close and reopen the file in order to do a second object. Same for a third, fourth, etc.

What am I doing wrong?

In the attached demo, how can I change the font size of all the text objects without closing and opening the file multiple times?

Sorry, I don't see a problem here. Which version are you using?


Quickest way: right-drag a selection rectangle round all texts. Then you can change them together

I'm using GeoGebra Classic 5.0.426.0

I was opening the text object's properties, then changing the serif/size using the drop down list. Works for the first object, but then can never get the change to stick for the next object unless I save/close/open.

I tried right-dragging a selection around all texts in the demo.ggb file. It still only changed the first object. Must be my version.

Make sure that the objects you select within a rectangle are selectable and not fixed.

Just a possibility

Checked. They are all selectable and not fixed.
