Recommended Posts

Help > Text  > Text frames > Fitting text to frames > To fit frame to frame  text…

The user-guide describes double-clicking the edge handle at the bottom centre of the text frame to fit the frame to the frame text.  This works great for a single frame with multiple columns where the inset is set to 0mm.  See the first image below.

However, if you change the inset to, say, 2mm and then double-click the edge handle as described above, then the fitting fails: see the second image below.  The expected behaviour would be the same as in the first example, but with the inset around it.

NB These two illustrations use a Column Break, which is placed after the last word in the first column, to force the text into the second column.  There is no overflow text in this example.
