Q - question

How to display the text editor toolbar?

A - answer When AutoCAD does not display the panel with text formatting tools (bold, italic, height, font, alignment, columns...) during text editing, you have either disabled this panel or you are using the Ribbon environment.

This toolbar is active by default when the ribbon is not displayed - context ribbon has its own text formatting tools. This behaviour is controlled by the MTEXTTOOLBAR variable (set to 2 by default). If you want to show the panel together with the ribbon, set this variable to 1.

You can also enable/disable this panel through the context menu - right-click in the edited text and choose "Editor settings > Show toolbar".
