You can have Publisher automatically resize your text to fit in a text box when the text box is not connected to other text boxes.

Turn copyfitting on

  1. Click in the text box.

  2. Click the Text Box Tools Format tab, and then click Text Fit.

    Click Text Fit

  3. Do one of the following:

    • To shrink or expand text to fit in the text box when you resize the box or type, click Best Fit.

    • To reduce the point size of text until there is no text in overflow, click Shrink Text On Overflow.

Turn copyfitting off

If your text is changing size as you type or when you resize a text box, you have AutoFit Text turned on. Here's how to turn it off so that the text stays the same size.

  1. Click in the text box.

  2. Click the Text Box Tools Format tab, and then click Text Fit.

    Click Text Fit

  3. Click Do Not AutoFit.

With automatic copyfitting turned off, the font size remains the same whenever you resize the text box.
