Scaling text in Illustrator
on Nov 30, 2005 at 8:47:36 am

Sometimes when I make a text block in Illust., I can scale the text
by pulling the corner handles.
Other times, just the text box grows but the text remains the same.

I noticed there is another square on the text box frame when I can scale it,
but can't seem to find a way to bring it on command.

any ideas on how to scale the text by scaling the text box ?

If you click and drag to form the boundaries of your text box, you will not be able to scale the text by dragging the corners.

To scale:
Click with the text tool once and then begin to type. Select the move tool. Reselect the text box and now you'll be able to scale the text.
