Home / IDTextFitter

Description

IDTextFitter attempts to fit overset or underset text in an InDesign Story into the text frames of that Story, while minimizing visible changes to the text design. Just select a TextFrame or some text, and run IDTextFitter. A second or two later, and you have a perfect fit.

The default settings of IDTextFitter do not change the point size or leading, since that can create mismatched baselines, with adjacent columns of text from two different stories.
