When the textbox in Illustrator is changed using the picot points the glyphs are not altered at all and the text is retypeset according to new bounds.
When the same textbox is chaged using the parameters box (width and/or height), the typesetting is kept same (linebraks, hyphentions) and the glyphs are deformed. Same behaviour is when the textbox is grouped with another object and the set is resized.
How can I prevent Illustrator to mess with glyph geometry and adjust the texboxes the same way no matter the way the box is resized?
EDIT after short discussion.
My case is a graph. Poor resolution (10px per glyph) - redraw and translate to native language.
For horizontally centered labels I use the textbox, set the alignment place and it is fine.
Then the text is updated because some word shall be translated differently and it does not fit anymore - I need to adjust and then the problem shows up. (Yes I confess, the nicely round values for sizes and positions are my fetish)
Same is with the texts with backgorund - to be able to position the visual box I keep them grouped - backgorund frame and the text. When the group is resized, for the very same reason, the glyphs are deformed.
I copy that sometimes one want to reshape glyphs with the box and sometimes one does not want that.
