In SpeedEDIT 1.5.5 an associate is attempting to simultaneously alter font size numerically, for several text boxes (all of which are the same size).

I'm aware of the Group/Ungroup gadgets within the Title Compose tab. But, there seems to be no way to numerically alter the text size of multiple lines of text simultaneously.

Anyone got a Tip, Trick, or workaround for this?

Yeah, Pete! And the Toaster4000 CG would've done the trick, too!

And ToasterCG also featured a spell-check function, after version 3.1, if I'm not mistaken.

Tee-hee! I suspected you were a veteran Amiga-Toaster user.

orig had a 2000 the orig.
and before that I had some kind of really expensive Matrox card.
I even remember my first editing job with a 2 inch quad machine.
boy those were the days.
Here is a pix of one of those beasts (1,900 lbs) I was trying to resurect this one but, alas, too many parts were missing.
sorry for the hi-jack

My memory is fading fast, but I seem to remember using a razor blade, some sort of liquid and a microscope to edit on one of those machines back in the early sixties. Very old.......

Every morning in the recording studio, I had to clean and align the tape heads. :hammer: Had to change hats to engineer when digital came along.
At least making coffee hasn't become an obsolete profession.

I still have an upright Moviola (not even a flatbed) in my studio next to my VT5 workstation.

Two IVC reel-to-reel decks, armed with a stopwatch in an attempt to synchronize "backtiming" and edit on the fly......

Ahhhh.....those were the days.....

I've got you all beat - I'll be 73 in October. Still have fond memories of the liquid, microscope, and razor blade for cutting quad tape. My upright Moviola still works and my non-profit (www.twotreesinc.org) has three Amiga Video-Toaster Flyers up for sale.
