I have just updated my affinity design and the behavior of the text bloc as changed. How can resize my text bloc without scaling its content ? 

I dont want to manually insert line return each time I want to change the size of the text bloc.

Hi therooftop,

Welcome to Affinity Forums :)

Are you sure you created the text object with the Frame Text Tool instead of the Artistic Text Tool?

Text frames created with the Artistic Text Tool will always scale the content of the frame, while text frames created with the Frame Text Tool will reflow the text if you use the frame bounding box handles or will scale it if you use the detached handle on the bottom right of the text frame.

Hello @MEB

along those lines, is there a way to...

A) ...turn text frames from one type to the other? 

B) ...resize text frames numerically using the transform panel?  
Ex: I made a graphic before learning this. I'm scaling it. Some of the text reflows, but I'd l'd really just like the wohle thing to scale using numerical precision.

... or is the only course of action, in order to resize numerically, to paste the text into Artistic Text and reinsert it into toe design?
