Thumbs Up "Layer Boundary Size" doesn't preserve text layer?
Hello all,
I have a text layer with width given at its creation. When I later open text editor and enter some wider text, it is wrapped to second line. So I would like to enhance the width of the layer to prevent this. When I add width to the layer using "Layer Boundary Size" menu item, text layer gets converted into standard bitmap layer Sad. I don't understand the logic why a text layer isn't preserved on change of its size .

Is there a way how I can adjust size of text layer without its conversion to a bitmap?
Thank you.
