Grow vertically text resizing

Hi there,

It seems like Figma used to have a “Grow vertically” resizing option for text to remove the extra space in text.

This can be seen in an article called: “Text box resizing behavior in Figma”, it should pop up first if you google it, by Thomas Lowry

Is there still a way to do this? The option seems to have completely disappeared.

Kind regards,


This setting has been renamed to “Auto height”.
