Can't adjust the height for text box

1. Describe the bug/issue you’re running into?
I can’t seem to adjust how high the text bounding box is after I create one. I can only adjust the width.

2. Are you able to consistently reproduce it? If so what are the steps?
I select the Type tool and drag out a box and I can control both height and width. After the box was created, I can only adjust the width.

3. Share a screenshot, recording, console log, link to the file, etc.

4. Is the issue only happening in desktop app or a specific browser , or both?

5. What OS/version and/or browser/version are you using?
Google Chrome Version 90.0.4430.9


same here! but instead of making the type box, I just tried clicking on the board with the text tool selected and it worked! now my text box matches the text size. but I see your point, it’s annoying not being able do resize that box😅

Same! The text box height correctly grows taller as you add text, but stays at it’s max height even if you delete characters and/or breaking spaces
