How to display 4 grips in the corners of MText?

A - answer If you are used to manipulating MText objects with the four grips in the corners of the text frame, you can still use them instead of the simplified grips of MTexts in AutoCAD 2010 (and higher).

To return to the pre-2010 behaviour of mtext grips, switch off dynamic columns. Before you create the text, set the MTEXTCOLUMN variable to 0 (instead of the default 2). If you want to change an existing paragraph text object, change its property (Ctrl+1) "Columns" to "No columns".
