Auto-sizing text boxes

Got an idea to improve LayOut?

Auto-sizing text boxes

My colleague has (rather explicitly) requested that I ask Sketchup why text boxes do not auto re-size when you increase text size.

He has a good point. I think this feature would save time when working through drawings.

It would also remove this annoying arrow:

Yes it is a good point, Brett although the text box you refer too is actually a bounding box which I assume works a little differently. Annoying all the same.

Try right clicking the selection and make sure 'Make Bounded' is active. Box will then expand/contract with text size.
