Hello You Expert Brains,
I am very familiar with Microsoft Word, however not so much with using the Smart objects. I just started using them and ran into a situation which has been very frustrating, to say the least.
In the attached file, you will see one of the Smart objects I used, along with the text chosen to insert. Every attempt I made to eliminate the amount of vertical space below the text "Individuals" has been unsuccessful.
Things that would have worked within a word document, do not work within the Smart object, at least not the way I am doing it. Here are the things I ran into which I could not figure out; even after spending 45 minutes with the wonderful Microsoft help screens:
1. Is there a way to have each of the individual objects (in this example, the 7 spheres) increase in diameter? Every time I tried to isolate one, and to increase its size, it didn't seem to work for me. Is there a way to do this for all objects at once?
2. Not being able to increase the size, and being on a deadline, I decided instead to reduce the size of the font, where required. That's when I ran into the situation shown in the diagram. The height of the area underneath the text was preventing me from using larger text because it exceeded the size of the object.
How the heck do you reduce or eliminate the area under the text? I tried adjusting it with the paragraph function, and just about every other option I could think of; all without success.
Thank you very much for your help in this.
