Workaround for Resizing Multiple Lines of Text, Numerically and Simultaneously?

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?

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.

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.

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.

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

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.
