Applies to- QuarkXPress 2019

Summary: QuarkXPress 2019 (v15.0) introduces a new text box property to let the box grow or shrink automatically during text input, text import/ text copy-paste/ drag and drop text. This feature adds huge benefits for the designer since they now do not have to keep dealing with the text over matter or keep readjusting box to fit the text length. Users can set text box width, height or both to auto. A text box can auto-grow up to the page margin (width-wise and height-wise).  

Solution :

  • Navigate to Window>Measurements
  • Under Home tab , select auto from the drop down for Width (W) and Height (H)

Please note :Auto (grow/shrink) property is only applicable for rectangular text boxes and will be turned off in case of non-rectangular boxes, boxes having text angle or text skew.
