The dropdown for those two items are greyed out and unavailable. On a backup server using SP1 I do not have this issue for the same report and my report developer bean counter says that it "worked just fine before the upgrade"?

Upgraded the BIDS system, SSRS and SQL on the server recently and installed "Report Builder 3". Help.

My developer is quite annoyed at me!

Can you change these properties in the properties window?

Yes we can ..
I can go to the text box properties and alter the size and font . .

That is all and good but we have a report with many textboxes all in a row that we want to set all at one time . .and without the formatting dropdowns we cannot do that . .I don't think??

Can't you select them all at once and change the properties directly?

I don't know :)
I cannot see your computerscreen, so I can't tell if BIDS is broken or if you are selecting the wrong things by accident.
