Text Autoscale within a box
on Dec 27, 2019 at 7:48:53 am

Hi all,
I'm looking to auto scale each of many lines of text to width-scale (so that aspect ratio is preserved) to fit into a box.

I would like preferably: each line of a paragraph to scale in size to fit into a box
or alternatively: have each text box scale in size to fit into the same box

I'm looking to have the 'leading' between each line of equal distance.

The box on the right is what I would like to achieve:


Many thanks in advance! :)

Hey Adam, looking at this, you most likely need to place each line of text into separate layer, and scale all of them up to certain width amount, while keeping text boxes aligned, OR just create one box which would take all text heights into account, including the padding.

Or alternatively, you can check Boxer on videohive, which will allow you to do this in a robust way, rather than hitting a head into a wall figuring out expressions for this.
