Text box sizes - bigger than text size

1. Describe the bug/issue you’re running into?
Adding a text box, the box is bigger than the text itself, making overlap other objects.

2. Are you able to consistently reproduce it? If so what are the steps?
Create a text box. change the text to Title > the text box gets big, and you can adjust the size of the box (I guess it should adjust to the text size automatically.)

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?
Mac desktop app

5. What OS/version and/or browser/version are you using?
Safari on Mac OS Big Sur 11.3.1

+1 to at least some ability to control text sizes.

Put another way:
The size of the text box dynamically expands to fit the text (as you add more text or increase the font size). However, the inverse is not true so you end up with larger than needed text boxes that get in the way when trying to select objects.
