Indesign CC 2014.2 Release
When I want to adjust frame to text, I always use the "Fit Frame to Content" shortcut (Alt + Command + C) on my Mac.
Sometimes it fits the Height of the frame to the content, and sometimes it also fits the Height and the Width, but I cannot figure out why sometimes it does one thing or the other....
Is there an extra step to Fit Frame to Content?
What are the conditions that the text has to meet to be either fitted vertically only or vertically and horizontally?
If the content is other-than-text, you'll get fitting of both height and width every time.
If the content is a single line of text, you'll get fitting of both height and width every time. When the text already occupies more than one line, you'll get fitting of height only.
