How to change the MText width for multiple texts?

A - answer If you want to unify width (frame width) for multiple MTexts or switch MTexts from no-wrap mode (width=0) to word-wrap mode (width>0), you can use two methods:
  1. Object Properties Manager - select all mtexts you want to change and in the Object properties palette (Ctrl+1) set the desired "Defined width" for all selected objects
  2. MatchProp - use the MATCHPROP command (Painter) to transfer (copy) object properties (incl. width) from one MText object to other MTexts
Set width to 0 to suppress word-wrapping.
