Changing Text Sizing

I am having some trouble getting my text sizing right with using text filters. I understand that you don’t need to use the font size to correctly size your text, you can just adjust the box size. But this has a limitation.

In my situation, I am fading in the first part of a line of text. I want to then fade in a second portion of text with more than one line. To get them both the same size is very fiddly, trying to eyeball them and the text box is not conducive to small adjustments. This would be much easier setting a specific font value. Also, you might want to change font size within the box.

Any ideas?

Neat trick and workaround. I still hope that in future versions we can just wrote the text, set the text size and then move it around and place it.
