    That's the way to do it. Maybe you have selected characters instead of the
    whole object. Check you have the little selection squares.

    Tom,

    select the textbox, not the text itself. Then it works.

    Tom,

    As Kurt indicates, use the Selection tool, not the Type tool to select.
