Short description of error

Scale to Fit text boxes will unexpectedly overflow onto a second line when text font scale is less than 1 (Font > Transform > Size = 0.5)

This error is easily reproduced when following the same steps, however it is difficult to find the steps that lead to a new instance of this bug.

Exact steps for others to reproduce the error
The linked .blend file should open displaying this bug, however if this is not the case you can reproduce by choosing a confirmed font:

  • Rubik
  • Arial

and many others

Type in a text within the bounds of the text box and then simply add one character at a time until you encounter the error
For my testing I was using "SOME TEXT HERE" and adding "a" until I got a line overflow.

In my example, one character more or less and it acts as expected.

Sadly this bug appears to depend on font, starting text, number of characters added, font size, and text box size. With so many variables, I have had a difficult time pinning down the root issue.

Can confirm the issue on Windows 10. Based on the blend file provided by the user.
Indeed it is hard to narrow down, after typing more characters, it does at times switches to overflow.

Was unable to reproduce by myself locally.

Just confirming that this issue does NOT depend on text size setting as initially suspected.
I have now had it happen when that value was set to 1 or more.
