As you create multiline text, you can override the text style and apply different formatting to individual words and characters. The format changes affect only the text you select; the current text style is not changed.
You can specify a different font and text height and apply boldface, italics, underlining, overlining, and color. You can also set an obliquing angle, change the space between characters, and make characters wider or narrower. The Remove Formatting option on the menu of options resets the character attributes of selected text to the current text style and also resets the text color to the color of the mtext object.
The text height setting specifies the height of capitalized text. For more information about how height is calculated, see MTEXT.
