Turn on and off automatic copyfitting

You can have Microsoft Publisher 2010 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. In the Text Box Tools tab, point to 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.

    • To have the text box expand to include the text, click Grow Text Box to Fit.

Turn copyfitting off

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

  1. Click in the text box.

  2. In the Text Box Tools tab, point to Text Fit, and then click Do Not AutoFit.

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