I often change width on an element when doing UI but I've never ever needed the text to expand as well, which means I every time have to click on the text and make sure it doesnt get stretched. An option to change such specific defaults would be great although I understand it might not be so simple to create a good UX around that.

Hi there,

You can actually achieve that today using two different methods:

1) Create your design using objects and artistic text, then group them and apply constraints (View/Studio/Constraints). Then set the text to not scale, you might want to constraint the left and top position as well. I bet that this would be de most common method since you're doing UX and the constraints were actually build with that in mind.

2) You could simple create your design with frame text instead artistic text... Then you just select your objects (group it if you want) and scale the whole think without worrying because the text frame will expand/stretch but the text will remain the same. If you want to scale the text, you can do it by using the second marker on the corner.

I did two quick videos to illustrate it better. I hope it solves your problem!
