This user guide covers the text box options on the Format Shape/Format Picture window. (See this user guide for ways to access the formatting window.)
Text box options are only available for text boxes, shapes, and captions. They're grayed out for other objects (pictures, screenshots, and characters).
Use these options to format text boxes:
This drop-down lets you control how high or low the text sits in an object.
This drop-down lets you control the rotation of the text in an object.
The autofit property controls what happens when text is too big to fit within the text box, shape, or caption. Choose one of the following:
Do not Autofit
This causes the text to overflow the object if there is too much to fit within it.
Shrink text on overflow
This automatically adjusts the font size so the text fits within the object.
Resize shape to fit text
This automatically resizes the object to accommodate the text.
These settings let you control the margins (padding) for text boxes, shapes, and captions. Enter values in pixels or use the arrows to adjust the values.
When marked, this option wraps text within the text box, shape, or caption. It's marked by default.
