For Snagit to automatically pick the size of the text that fills a text box in the most optimal way

I waste many actions per image on getting the best size for my letters in a text box that I made. What would make the use of Snagit much better for me, is if this is automated? So, say, I select a text box of 300 by 300 on an image, and I want 5 sentences in it, maximizing the space with these sentences, that Snagit automatically picks the best size for it. Cheers

In short:

1. What: For Snagit to automatically pick the size of the text that fills a text box in the most optimal way. 
2. Why: Cuts the time for making a simple image in half if not more. 
3. How: Most actions I spend in Snagit is on resizing text. Especially if the text is all too big, then the image becomes very big to fit it all in and I have to resize it all again. The text box is the size I want it all to fit into. Automating it is a huge time winner.

Sounds like a pretty good idea to me!

I'm voting for this but I would like to add a caveat.

I agree that the pure text box should do this.  You carefully draw a text box in a space that is confined.  You want the text to be constrained to that space but Snagit grows it, and it does it immediately because the default font is something like 24pt  I never want a font that big for a pure text box

But I would not want the same behaviour on call outs.  By definition they need to grow to suit the text entered without shrinking the font size.
