How to modify blocks of text imported from Autocad files

N/A

Hello,
I'm new to SE and just started using the 2D software. Is there a way to change large
blocks of text in the color yellow (hard to see when printed) that I get from an
imported AutoCad file to black? I can change them individually but this takes to
much time. Thanks for any help.

Start the Select tool and then select the Smart Select option (icon with
lightening bolt on the pointer). Select one of your text elements . A form
will appear that will allow you to set some filters such as: element type,
layer, color, line width and line type. SE will only allow changing
attributes such as color for multiple elements if they are the same type, so
select Element type. All elements of the same type will then be selected
and their color can be changed.
