I have a text paragraph. Is there a way of resizing it without having to pull the box or stretch it?

(ex. Let's say it's 50px high, how can I define the size of it using pixels to 100px?)

EDIT: How about an extension?

I don't think there is. –  Scott May 21 '13 at 23:54
    
Hmmm... maybe there is an extension? –  Tzvi May 21 '13 at 23:55
    
If there are no constraints on width and you can control how many lines of text there are you can use the font size and line-height to mathematically define it into 100px with five 20px lines. –  Dominic Jun 7 '13 at 10:10
    
Great idea there! @DominicB-c you should have posted that as an answer! ;) –  Tzvi Jun 9 '13 at 16:21
    
If that's the best course of action available in this case then I will. –  Dominic Jun 9 '13 at 23:49

If there are no constraints on width and you can control how many lines of text are shown, you can use the font size and line-height to mathematically define it into 100px with (100px/number of lines).

Unfortunately, I'm not aware of such functionality or plug-ins that can let you do it.

I'd suggest you use guides instead, or shapes, or even slices, something that will let you take advantage of snap (snap to guides, grid, layers, slices). You'd first need to create a skeleton of your measurements, and then create the text blocks using them as guides.

Thanx. I use the grids to snap it ;) –  Tzvi May 22 '13 at 0:07
