To scale type horizontally or vertically using the keyboard:

1.
Choose the Content tool.

2.
Highlight the text to be scaled.

3.
Hold down Ctrl and press left bracket ([) to condense or shorten in 5% increments, or right bracket (]) to expand or lengthen . Include the Alt key to scale in 1% increments. Scaling will be horizontal or vertical depending on which option is currently selected in the Character Attributes dialog box.

This method for resizing type interactively rather than by specifying an exact point size is appropriate when you're working visually—trying to make a headline or a logo look just so.
