Don't change the font sized in callouts based on the size of the object or the amount of text.

We create lots of screen recordings and annotate them with text boxes. I have a set of standards on what the callouts look like and I need the font size to be fixed and consistent across projects. If I use legacy callouts, the font remains fixed BUT I can't see the cursor in the callout so editing is a nightmare.

If I use other callouts, the font size randomly changes based on the actual text and the size of the callout. Why is that? It makes no sense to me.

We need our projects to look the same, no matter who creates them. Randomly changing the font size does not allow this to happen. We really need to have fixed font sizes for all types of callouts and to be able to see the cursor within the callout box when editing.

I think this is a reasonable request.

Hello, here's a feature improvement we're considering adding. Essentially it's a toggle between auto-resizing text and resizing the object to fit the text. Please view the video and leave any constructive feedback / comments you have in it.
