I found the solution here.. Good luck
Hello. Does anyone know a lisp routine which change all MText color to "by layer"? Changing just the entity "MText" doesn't work, it won't apply the same layer color, so I have to edit MText by MText and change to by layer in edition mode one by one. Thanks!!
without using a LISP you can QSELECT the text and change it in the properties panel.
the BYLAYER command could also be what your looking for depending on what CAD your running

QSELECT or even "sellect all" - Ctrl+A in the properties window and filter to MText objects does not help, in Multiline Text you can override/change the properties(color,font,size) of the text within the text editor. and with QSELECT or Ctrl+a filter Mtext changes only the shell properties, this also applies when using "SETBYLAYER" that works fine for most other objects blocks, Text, lines... but MTxt. I suppose is one of the bugs Autodesk has to look at it. I tried on AutoCAD 2009,2010,2011.
I also tried on 2011 the above mentioned lisp and I could not make it work :-) even after adding (vl-load-com) to the code.
I am sure we can find working lisp for this problem.
