Are there parameter controls for a text layer's bounding box?

Are there parameter controls for the bounding box applied to a text layer? If there is, it's not located in the text layer's twirl down.

If you're wondering why I'd want parameter controls, it's because when you apply a mask path to a text layer and want to adjust the bounding box's width/length, the bounding box is no where to be found, until you UN-apply the mask as a path. If there's no parameter control, does anyone know if there's a way to keep the bounding box visible after having applied a mask path to text?

Thanks in advance!

I am not sure what you mean, hower in general the bounding box is good mainly just for scaling and rotating which can be easily done on the timeline... just hit "s" or "r" and adjsut the nubmers.

Do we mean the same thing by "bounding box" - are you reffering to that rectangular thing with 8 control points and one anchor point that appears around any layer? :)
