Viewing (creating) a text bounding box

I created text on a text layer, by simply clicking once with the type tool, and then typing. Now, art a later stage, I'd like to modify the charateristics of this text, as if I'd drawn a text box to write that text into in the first place.

 

So my question is: How can I / What do I do to convert that text to sit within a text bounding box. (This box will be much larger than the text I already have as this comp has become a mograph, and I've realised I'd like the text to wrap onto the next line, if required)

 

Thanks for any advice

Nothing to change. You need to create a new paragraph text layer. There is no way to toggle this after the initial creation.

Damn! Ok, thanks for the response. I hoped that was not going to be the case (but feared it would be!). I've got a bunch of keyframes/masks etc working with this text, so I didn't really want to start an entirely new layer! 

 

But hey ho, you live and learn.

 

Thanks again.
