Problem with FHMX: Text Attributes - Macromedia Freehand

    Default Problem with FHMX: Text Attributes

    I was wondering if anyone could help me. I use Freehand MX and OSX.
    I usually import a lot of text into Freehand, Select All, and change
    the Text Attributes in the Inspector. When I do this in Freehand MX,
    the inspector does not give me an option to change the text attributes
    for all the text at once (I mainly use the text squeeze function).
    It only gives me an option to change other elements on my doent,
    such as lines.

    I have to select each individual text box and squeeze the text. This
    is very frustrating and slow procedure with the new inspector. Is
    their anyway to select All text in a doent and squeeze it by 90% at
    once?

    Thanks alot.

    Try just selecting all the text in the doent (and nothing else) by
    using the Graphic Find/Replace. Goto the Select tab and choose Font,
    then leave it at Any. Set the search to Doent.
