Please give some more information about which version you are using?

I suspect it is not the most recent version which is version 12.

If it is an older version, which workflow do you use to create the responsive project: Fluid Boxes or Breakpoint views?

That is an older version of CP2019, please update to 11.8.2.

Can you answer all my questions please? In a responsive project you only have to set the maximum resolution (mostly called desktop), whether you use Fluid Boxes or Breakpoint views. When switching to lower screen resolutions everything will be rescaled and/or rearranged depending on your setup of the Breakpoint views or the Fluid Boxes.

Breakpoint Views workflow is an older version to create responsive projects. It is a lot more work, but you have more control as a developer. You cannot lock font size in fluid boxes, the font size will automatically adapt to the available space. You can only change the minimum font size (which is pretty big, set to 14pt). When that size is reached and text cannot be displayed fully, the specific icon to expand will appear.

Several years ago I created this comparison:

https://blog.lilybiri.com/fluid-boxes-or-breakpoint-views

The new version 12 doesn't have the fluid font size adaption, you can only have a font size for Desktop, Tablet and Mobile (phone). Bit like Breakpoint views, but there you had 5 possible situations, not 3.

If you have a subscription license for Captivate CP2019 (all versions 11) you can also the new version 12 (sometimes indicated as Charm, as All New Captivate, as CP2023). 

Beware: this version is very limited and gives you much less control than all previous versions, except for the font size you want.

I know, that is a problem. Did you set up object styles in a consistent way?

Do you use Object styles? You cannot fix the font size, because that would be contrary to the idea of a responsive project. Imagine a Title font size on desktop of 48pts. If the title kept that same size on a phone where the browser width is around 300pts in Portrait mode, that title would show only some characters in 48pts.

On the one slide, when using same object style for multiple text containers, the option 'Enable uniform text scaling' is activated by default. When font size is changed due to shrinking of the browser resolution on smaller devices, the change will be the same for all text containers.

In the new version you have even less control. In Classic Captivate you can change the resolution of the desktop view which is the starting view. In the new Captivate you just have to trust the application.

For font size there is a difference: Fluid Boxes will take care of a fluid rescaling of font sizes until the minimum font size is reached. In the new Captivate you have to choose 3 font sizes which are static: one of the Desktop, one for the Tablet and one for the Mobile. They can be changed in the text style of the Theme.
