    "Resize to smallest height"does not work on enlarged, rotated text objects

      Resize to smallest height does not work on rotated text objects which have <TextObj flags="2">

      (that is text objects that have been stretched to a fixed size and do not change their size when formatting, e.g. bold is applied

      1. Create some identical text objects
      2. Pull the bottom left corner of one of them to make it a bit wider and higher (so that it does not change size when you apply bold formatting)
      3. rotate the objects once or thrice.
      4. Add a third object which is not so tall as the others
      5. Select all objects and select Resize to smallest height

       

      expected result => ALL objects resize to smallest height

      actual result => text objects that have been rotated and changed in size do NOT resize. (In the picture the red objects)

       

      Note: upside-down text does not suffer from this problem

       

      Seems to be an error introduced in FileMaker 12 (since the change in behavior of expanded text object (i.e. TextObj flag=2) and present in ALL versions since then.
