Allow the rectangle textbox to grow or shrink based on the text within the box.  When creating data driven pages, I sometimes add long text to describe the data in the map.  If I size the textbox for the longest text and the text shrinks for one of the maps, I'm left with a large blank space between the bottom of the text and the bottom border of the box.

Also, within a rectangle textbox, allow me to control the vertical justification of the text.  Currently, it's only top justified.  I'd like the ability to make it center or bottom justifiy.

Thank you.

+1 for vertical justification in rectangle text.  Seems to me like grow/shrink would be better implemented as allowing users to set a fixed width for normal text elements.

Great idea and conversly I would like to see the TEXT grow or shink to fit the box.

Wow, this is from 6 years ago. I can't believe this has never been implemented. It would be so, so useful.

+1 Surprising vertically aligning text is still not possible.
