How do I get the text to scale? Can This be done?

You have to drag the second handle bottom right being a bit away from the selection.

In the transform pannel (view>studio>transform) in the W(idth) or H(ight) enter the numbers you want. I entered -50% next to to width and press enter afterwards. Also theres is a uniform icon next to it that allows you to scale it proportionally or not.

That will not scale the point size of selected text frame objects along with other selected objects. AFAIK, only dragging by the handle @Joachim_L indicated in his reply will do that, so there is no way to scale it all numerically.

You scale the group to 52% in the Transform panel

Then you select all the text (i.e. highlight it) and in the font size input field at the top of the screen type 52%
