I have a project that requires the lettering to be 1" wide and 1 1/2" tall. is there any way to do this without resizing each letter? when i give it the dimensions it comes out smaller due to the text box.
add a shape (rectangle) set it to 0 depth and move it off to the side away from your design… then select the new shape and your text and go Edit>combine (or press ctrl+j)
This will change your text from editable text and turn it into a vector which doesn’t have the oversized bounding box, and the size shown is the true size.
Oh and the rectangle will disappear…
And, you can run the “font” objects through the Xploder app to turn them into regular vector objects as well.
