Text typing over itself

I'm using Premiere Pro v22 on a MacBook Pro 2019.

 

I'm an intermediate user of Premiere.

 

I cannot figure out how to create a text box in this new version or adjust the text box once it exists.  My text is typing over-itself, rather than wrapping or naturally expanding.  When i try to enlarge the text box, the text itself simply enlarges with it.  

 

What am I missing?

 

Thanks!

To change the size of a text box rather than expand it and the text inside ensure you select the 'selection tool' rather than the text tool (find it in the same small panel that contains the 'T' Text tool). Once selected click the text box. It will change colour and adjustment dots will appear around the edges of the box. Now you'll be able to adjust the text box size without changing the text itself - click on one of the dots and drag. Hope that helps

This may be obvious to you, but from what I'm thinking when I read your post is that you want it to be similar to something like MS Word. Adobe isn't like that with text and images (i'm fairly sure), so if you want to wrap around you'll have to manually do it by making new lines around the image.

 

Same thing with text boxes, it's not like MS Word. You don't have to enlarge the text boxes though, you can just type whatever you want and it will enlarge by itself.

 

Creating a text box should be the same as the old version. Press the T key and click anywhere on the Program Monitor. You can double click it to edit the text.

 

Tell me if I misunderstood your issue.
