Shrink text on overflow

Post by Lihis » Sat Dec 09, 2017 8:23 pm

I think this could be broke down to two points:

1.
Unlike on MS PowerPoint 2016 there does not seem to be option for "Shrink text on overflow" for text box. This means that on SoftMaker the text goes vertically over the box while on PowerPoint the text fits the box when the "Shrink text on overflow" option is enabled.

PowerPoint 2016

SoftMaker 2018 rev 919.1204

I couldn't find out is this feature on SoftMaker or not, if it's not then consider this as a feature request.

2.
If a presentation created on PowerPoint is opened and then saved in SoftMaker the "Shrink text on overflow" options are changed to "Do not Autofit" options.

And for a reference the options in PowerPoint:

I will report this as a feature request to the product management.

Could you please attach a sample file (not yet saved with Presentations)? Thank you!

Sure, it's in the attachment. Created with MS PowerPoint 2016 and it has not been touched with any other programs.
