Size (Width and Height) of Label components do not update when font size or padding are changed

Dave shared this problem 3 years ago
Solved

I have a label (well, a FontAwesome "Ellipsis h", but it's really just a label) in my prototype. When I change the font size, the values in the Width and Height fields of the "Position and size" portion f the Properties panel do not change to reflect the new font size.


Similarly, when I change the padding on the same component, the Width and Height do not update.


It does not appear to be related to the fact that "AutoFit text" is turned on by default and the Width and Height fields are locked by default for FontAwesome components: a normal label component misbehaves in the same way whether "AutoFit text" is enabled or not, and whether the fields are locked or not. Although the component visually changes size, the fields are not updated to reflect the changes.


In order to see the resulting sizes, I must select another item, then re-select the one I'm trying to adjust. It breaks the flow, particularly if I'm using keyboard controls to change the padding or font size.

This is still true in 7.0.0. I'm glad you're sorry, and I believe that you filed the necessary suggestions, but what didn't happen is that the bug got fixed. Can we get this working, please?
