Transform with affecting the font size (artistic text)?

Recommended Posts


I am wondering if there is a way to keep font size when doing transforms (shrinking, stretching...). I am trying to keep the whole documents with the same font size, but need to resizing some of the groups frequently to arrange things. 

I know it may looks wired if some of the text don't resize as other components, but I can adjust them later, still better than I have to fix every text one by one. As in most cases, they looks fine actually.

By shrinking and stretching do you mean compressing and expanding the texts characters in relation to each other?

Why not create text styles instead, once you have applied a saved text style editing that style will modify all the text that the text style is applied to.

I guess my problem with the "styles" are that, if I set a style (say "main text") on a block of text, and then stretching it. It become "main text +" and no longer governed by the "main text" style. I have to later select every text block and change them back to "main text" style.

Maybe I missed something here...

I think it's a defining characteristic of Artistic Text that its font size changes when you shrink or stretch it.

Perhaps Frame Text would be more appropriate for your needs?
