Shrink textframe to amount of text?

Previous topic - Next topic


Is there anyway to shrink a text frame to the amount of text that I have in the textframe?

I cant seem to find it in the help/docs.


hi digirew

yes, there is a function to 'adjust frame height to text' (at least in scribus 1.5.?). you'll find it in the context menu and in 'item' → 'adjust', but there is still a bug: there has to be at least one descender in the last line of text, otherwise this line won't fit inside of the frame.



Actually today by accident I activated this feature. I think it was just through a click on the text frame as it suddenly snapped up to the end of the text on the page. Will have to investigate further on how I did it, will update soon as it is getting late here

However is it possible to do this via. script? and not the application (GUI) itself?



yes you can do this with a script and there might be a script around that those it.

i could not find it in my collection, but you can have a look at this script

and find out how to do it...
