Text Box Shrinks
Whenever I start a new box of text, I set it to an area big enough to write. As soon as I type the letter the box automatically shrinks to the size of the first letter. This only happens sometimes, but when it happens I am frustrated. Do you know why this happens, and can I stop it?

RE: Text Box Shrinks
Mine doesn't grow, the text disappears behind the box. I just saw a tut where he changed the size and the size of the boxed changed. This is not what happens with mine. If I make the text larger, the box stays the same size and the text hides...

?

Yep, that did the trick, thanks. I was sizing a box, if I just click it changes with the text. Many thanks Ofnuts.

I am on Ubuntu 11.10 currently.

Wait a second, if I click on the background the text box grows as I type, but if I increase the px of the text it still disappears behind the box....?

OK, it was happening before, but if I do not touch anything else after I select the text option and tick the background, the text box is working correctly.
