Base layer fint size changes on layers

Hi everyone,

I have a slide with several layers. The font size of base layer text changes when I open some of the layers in preview mode - suddenly, the base layer text is larger than before. I tried solving it by recreating the layers and by playing around with the "shrink text to fit" option but they don't seem to help. I attached the slide herewith if someone wants to check if they experience the same problem when previewing. 

Happy holidays!

Hi Kolja!  

Not sure if you already resolved this on your own, or with the help from the awesome support team, but I thought I'd chime in since I recently found myself in a similar situation!

I downloaded your file and played around a bit.  What worked for me, was to completely delete the text box containing the font that kept getting larger on the base layer, then recreating it.  From there, I pasted the text back in, and formatted the font. 

I'm a lot better with visuals, so I did this quick screen recording for you :)

I hope this helps!  I'd love to hear back if you have any other questions, and if you don't mind sharing, I'm curious if you found a different work around!

Hi K,

Thanks for reaching out! It looks like Rebecca has offered a tip to replace the text box, which will help resolve the issue.

Another fix you can try is to remove the Dreieck1 and Dreieck2 states you're not using. It looks like state changes to the text box cause the formatting error. If you remove them and any related triggers, you should be good to go!

Here's a quick video that helps explain it, and I've also attached the file for reference!
