hey guys

i'd like to resize the textbox (drag text tool) according to the text within.
Is there an expression to do this?

Thanks in advance

Marc - I guess you are referencing drag-text tool as Area text?

So it works in the same way as other sourceRectAtTime, you just need to reposition text and text box in order not to introduce shift of location, when text changes !

I've created a script to shortcut this process.

You can download it from my website
