For my drawings, I want the textbox(es) to be automatically resized to the text content. How can I get that?

  1. Open Show ShapeSheet for Shape
  2. In Shape Transform, set Width=TEXTWIDTH(TheText) and Height=TEXTHEIGHT(TheText, 999)

Reference here.

  • The answer here is deceiving. The image with yellow highlight shows that the TEXTHEIGHT function's second argument should be 0.9 in when in fact it should be 999 as shown in the original answer. If you use 0.9, then the text box grows as you type text on a single line, causing spaces to form under that line of text. – Jazimov Feb 5 '18 at 18:47
  • Instances that are already on drawing don`t inherit new master formula. To update them it is necessary to use scripting or Cntr+X to get a master formula for some cell – SergeyFomin Apr 10 '18 at 5:11
