How do I drag a corner of a type box and scale the type with box?

also, many indesign type control methods seem to be missing, icrease leading, kerning, superscript.no paragraph formatting options, space after paragraph etc

I would love to do alot more of my designs in xd, but it seems to be missing some features

Hi @hegercreative,

 

Thank you for reaching out. You can currently fit area text to its content by double-clicking the bottom area text resize handle. It works both when the text is shorter than the area text box and when the text is larger than the area text box. When the text is larger than the box and truncated, the bottom resizes handle will turn red. 

Please submit your feedback on the below uservoice links and add your vote.

 

Leading:

Thank you for such a thorough response. I can now resize text by clicking and dragging, and great on the superscipt, baseline shift option seems to be buried or missing. Seems the other typographic features in the threads you linked, leading and kerning and paragraph formatting, users have been asking for since 2016. And sadly we have not gotten.
