Hi all,

 

Whenever I adjust the size of a text box to a little bit smaller than the text itself, the actual text seems to sort of disappear. I want the text to automatically fit the text box. Is there a way?

 

Many thanks.

Well, seems logical to me that the teext disappears if the frame is too small.

What you are looking for is “fit frame to content”. Shortcut is Cmd (Mac) Alt C or Ctrl (Windows) Alt C, or this icon in the control panel

Hi jimmyp72928092,

seems that you change the width or height of the text frame so that the text is running into overset.

 

Do it a bit differently:

Fit the text frame to its contents automatically in various ways. Look the functions up in the text frame options.

After doing this you could scale the text frame together with the text to a new size. Use the percentage input fields of the Control panel or the Properties panel for this.

 

Note: You could also input values like e.g. 100 mm into the percentage input fields.

InDesign will calculate the new size.

 

Regards,
Uwe Laubender
