Resizing text in pdf imported objects in AD 1.7

Recommended Posts

Dear Affinity team, I'm afraid my workflow really has taken a hit with 1.7; it mainly concerns the different way 1.7 seems to handle boxes of text objects upon pdf import (I also remarked on the issue with the size of the boxes here). Previously, resizing of text from objects imported from a pdf would result in a change of the text size, whereas now it only changes lines, but not the text. Is there any way to toggle between this behavior and changing the text size?

Thanks!

Do you have Favour editable text over fidelity and Group lines of text into text frames checked? And are you resizing from the far right bottom corner handle, the one outside the frame? Or are you using one of the regular frame resize handles, that would give you the second (New) behaviour whereas the far right bottom corner handle increases and decreases the size of the letters but keeps the lines together.

Usually people have this problem in reverse: "Why does the size of my text change when I resize the text frame?"
