Scale Parent to text Child


Recommended Posts

It helps to know what app(s) you have.

But it can be done in Publisher, using....

Art Text
Text Frame Panel (for the black fill colour)
Paragraph Panel to add 4 decorations (with required stroke size, rounded corners and Indents)

Attached file may be easier to understand

I can't open V2 to see how Carl did it, – nevertheless, here a workaround with a pinned object for one end of the background. It moves with typing. The Art text frame itself has a paragraph decoration as background fill colour.

Thanks, @carl123, clever solution to achieve the corner radius via the Decoration's stroke width!

If the fill gets set as a Paragraph Decoration, too, the Text Frame panel is not required + you can save the design as a Text Style.
(…which, for a different font size, only needs to adjust the Bottom Indent if the stroke has "Scale with Object" activated.)
