Designer: How to scale textframes when resizing artboards via the transform panel?

Recommended Posts

Hello there!


I am currently trying to resize an existing artboard to an exact value using the transform panel, however I can't get the textframes to scale with the artboard, rather than just changing the frame size. When I use the "scale handle" and "manually" resize the artboard, it works just fine.

How would I go about doing it with the transform panel?


I have this question also over on stackexchange: https://graphicdesign.stackexchange.com/questions/120555/affinity-designer-how-do-i-make-textframes-scale-with-the-artboard-if-i-scale-b


Also attached you should find a gif demonstrating the issue I am facing.

Hi @Arvid_B,

It's not currently possible to do this with the text frame. You would have to use the Artistic Text for now. 

I have moved this to feature requests.
