Hello!
I would like to resize an SFX subtitle_white box, without having the text in it skewed.
Please see my example: http://prntscr.com/dkci1a -> Box is to wide
When fitting the box to the chalkboard it gives me: http://prntscr.com/dkcil5
How may I get around this problem?

Any help is highly appreciated!

Try changing the font size and see if that helps. Here is an example:  The first and second textboxes are default Text_subtitle_white, font is 20.  The last is the default Text_subtitle_white, font 30. Question: are you going to add more text to the box or just one line?

Thank you sjonesdc for your answer...

The problem actually came up when I tried to create something with more lines (see last example) but the same problem occurs, when I would like to use a big font, like 72px.
In my case the boxes do not change sizes depending the font used>:


Funny that I don't find anything about this problem in the tutorials nor the forum... I am obviously doing it wrong Sad

I don't think that the boxes automatically resize with larger fonts and it looks like there's a limit to the font size.  As for the tutorials, the way I look at them is they get you started then you're left to explore - there are members of the forum that have more knowledge and experience than I such as dicho, toonsunlimited, Garry Pye, and Ibis Fernandez. Try reaching out to one of them.

Thanks for popping in, garrypye

I got around creating the text with Illustrator and importing it as a prop, but I think this is a bug as it is unusable for the most cases at the moment.

How would I report such a problem to Reallusion?

I would recommend you ditch the SFX with in the application all together.   If you have an external application that can make vector images.  Type your text up in the external application, then save it as a swf file.  From there you can drag it to the stage and resize it how ever you like with no problemshttps://forum.reallusion.com/uploads/images/55ae7852-3662-428a-a1f3-7fc6.png.
