Chapter 50. Text Frame Properties > Fitting a Frame to Its Text

Fitting a Frame to Its Text

Before we discuss those controls, let’s introduce a useful technique for fitting text in its frame which XPress doesn’t have. Text frames are often larger than they need to be. You can ask InDesign to automatically fit the frame to the size of the text contained in it. First, either select the frame or frames with the Selection tool or click an insertion point with the Type tool. Then choose Fit Frame to Content from the Fitting submenu (under the Object menu), or press Command-Option-C/Ctrl-Alt-C.

The frame’s size is reduced to the size of the text, but how it happens depends on what it contains.
