automaticly fit text to box

Not applicable
Hello, i need to type alot of text msg's into small boxes, and because my text is in different lengths it will be difficult to fit every each sentence into its own box, so, do you guys know how to set that your text automaticly fits the window you need to type it in??
thanks in advance


If you double-click to start the text (rather than two clucks to define the text box area), the text box will tightly enclose the text you type. Also, deselecting the Wrap Text option will fit the box to the text.

I think Koviac does need to "cluck" (click) twice to define the width of the text box if he wants then to match the grey boxes in his image.
But he will also need to set the text font size to suit (i.e. smaller than that shown) so that the text fits better.
Unfortunately this will be trial and error as there is no way to make the text size adjust automatically.
Only the word wrapping will adjust automatically if it is on.
