Resize text frame to fit all the text in InDesign
I’m sure this keyboard shortcut is an official one mentioned in the help files (I haven’t looked…) but I’ve just discovered it!
If you have a text frame in InDesign and you lace some text in it, you may get the plus sign in the corner showing you there is more text than fits the containing frame. To automatically resize the frame, select it then pres Cmd + alt + C. (Cltr + alt + C on Windows.)other page
Thank you! I would now go on this blog every day!
I will try to keep posting on a daily basis with something useful!
I usually don’t post in Blogs but your blog forced me to, amazing work.. beautiful …
Thanks very much!
thanks to this post….
You are welcome!
Great tip! Just used it 🙂
Some 20 years on InDesign/PageMaker and I just discovered this shortcut after googling for it. Even though you may have forgotten all about this post, thanks!
This only resized the bottom side of the frame for him (vertically). It doesn’t resize the frame horizontally. How can I proportionally resize a text frame from all sides?
This will only increase the frame vertically to allow for the additional text. If you want to resize a frame horizontally, you need to do it manually. You would probably want to do this anyway to make sure it doesn’t affect your design grid layout.
Hey guys, Ctrl + Alt + C is not working anymore. Does any of you know the new shortcut ?
