If you are using Octave without the GUI then "doc ('text properties')"
should display the doc you mentioned through the "info" program. It is even
possible to display a given property of using e.g. "doc ('text fontsize')".
Unfortunately the doc browser of the GUI can't currently do that (see this
In order to have a list of all writable properties (which is often enough
since most property names are self explanatory) use the "set" function with
one argument:

h = text ();
set (h)

Hope this helps,
