    when i use the text box, small pieces of the letters are cut off at the edge (note the letter “d” in the word “and” in the attachment).

    how do i work around this?

    Hi Mike,
    Text boxes can be resized to accomodate text that is larger than the original box. Try grabbing the text box handles with the Select tool to resize, or right-click and choose ‘Fit To Text’ from the contextual menu. – Jill

    Hi Mike,
    This can sometimes happen with italicized text because the internal text metrics don’t take that extra needed space into account. Try right-clicking on the text box and unchecking ‘Clip Contents’ – this will allow the text to render beyond the strict bounds of the text box and should solve the problem.
