I'm very new to Adobe XD and I can't seem to scale text or objects. I'm following the Music App tutorials by Howard Pinsky and I can see he is clicking on groups of text/objects and scaling them. However, I'm unable to scale on my IMac. When I click on a group of text it just scales the text area, keeping the text on the same weight. Am I missing a keyboard shortcut (like holding down SHIFT or CMD) or is there some setting I need to turn on? Please help!

Hi Patty,

 

Welcome to the Adobe XD Community!

 

Thank you for reaching out and using Adobe XD. I feel that you're trying to scale the grouped objects. If so, you need to make sure that you're selecting the object rather than a groups of objects then you need to double click on the object you want to scale. Let me know if that helps.

 

Please let me know if I misunderstood your workflow and share the video of your workflow for better understanding.

 

I will try my best to help.

 

Thanks,

Harshika

Hi Patty,

 

Thanks for reaching out. To resize a text, you can refer to this article: https://helpx.adobe.com/xd/help/drawing-text-tools.html#text-tools

 

You can also refer to this responsive resize article: https://helpx.adobe.com/xd/help/using-responsive-resize.html

 

If this doesn't help, would you mind sharing the video link along with the time stamp, when the text area was resized? We'll try our best to help you with it.

 

Regards

Rishabh

If the text element is an Area Text, you can only resize the area, while the text will retain its properties.

If the element is a Point Text, you get only 1 "handle" at the bottom, which you can drag to resize the text, changing its size.

You can change between point text and area text here:

Hello Harshika,

 

That method worked for an individual object and I was able to scale it!

 

Thank you for the help.
