Resize text box without changing text size/stretching

Recommended Posts

I am trying to change a text box on my Affinity Designer document.  When ever I try, the text stretches and/or changes size / shape.  It there a key that I can hold down to keep text from changing size and only change the text frame?  Please do tell!

Hi KCinA2,

Welcome to the forums :)

This depends on the tool used to insert the text, the Artistic Text Tool will always resize your text to the frame size, however with the Frame Text Tool you can reflow the text if you use the frame bounding box handles or scale it if you use the detached handle on the bottom right of the text frame.

I hope this helps!

On top of what Dan said, you can also convert artistic text to frame text. To do that, highlight the text and copy it, and then use any other tool to paste it. That will maintain the size of the artistic text in a frame.


The website is still a work in progress. The "Comics" and "Shop" sections are not yet ready. Feel free to connect with me and let me know what you like or what can be improved. You can contact me here, on my contact page, YouTube channel, or Twitter account. Thanks and have a great day!
