Modify text Style on Dynamo

Is it possible to modify the text style through Dynamo?? I’m trying to get the text property but I’m always getting “Empty List” .

Hi @frodriguezmXYFSS
Is this what you’re trying to do?

Awesome @Kulkul
Where can I check those python scripts?

I remember seeing something looks similar before on this forum, but I cannot get it now.

Hi, can you share the python scripts to make the text style changes please. i am not too familiar with python.

This isn’t quite the same as what @Kulkul did, but give it a try. Provide a string input for the name of the text style you want to change to and it will change all Text and MText in model space.
