I have a page designed and ready and now I need to create a different size of it for another purpose, basically reduced by about half and tweak where necessary. The problem is that the text is not resizing along with everything else. The text boxes themselves reduce but the text size doesn't change and ruins the layout. In InDesign all I had to do was group the text boxes with everything else, choose 50% and they would scale accordingly. (Can't even pick 50% in Publisher but that's another topic.) Can I do this in Publisher without having the manually redo all the text?

Never tried it with complicated pages, but yes it is doable. Go to Spread Setup pick your new page size, click the Scaling tab, select Rescale, click OK.

The text size is scaled as well. For a test I shrinked the page from A4 to A5 with 14pt text later becoming 9,9pt.

Added: Maybe you could upload the file and desired page size in question?

Yes, I tried the above already and it basically worked but it took more work to get what I needed. It would have been quicker and easier if I could resize everything directly on the page. The problem is there doesn't appear to be a way for the text to resize proportionately when you resize a text box, so maybe Affinity can add in the feature in the future.

If you select all objects on the page then use the special bottom-right adjustment handle then the text should resize proportionally  as well

(none of the other adjustment handles will do this)


Due to the ongoing Brexit negotiations, punctuation, spelling and grammar will be used sparingly until further notice.
