this can be acheived in indesign when holding CTRL while scaling. is it possible also on illustrator?
I assume you are trying to scale text in a container.
Switch to the scale or transform tool. Illustrator does not have a quick key like CTRL.
You can use the not key of S to switch to scale tool, then (v) to go back to slect tool.
While in the scale tool you can use hold down CTRL to switch to the Select tool, which is as similar to InDesign as I know of.
Thanks for both answers.
The scale tool doesnt change the font size numeric value, like indesign does. i'm looking for this feature.
Do you understand what am i trying to acheive?
So there is no any efficent way to scale it with mouse like in Indesign? 😞
The scale tool definitely works.
Please tell us the steps that don't work for you. And please show screenshots of your text.
In Ai you can use "CTRL+SHIFT+<" or "CTRL+SHIFT+>" for decreasing or increasing selected text font size. This shortcut is common shortcut for changing font size in many apps In Ai CTRL+scrolling mouse moves canvas.
it doesn't work for me. what am i missing?
