Whenever I create a textbox in LibreOffice Draw it is forcing it to be square. In the Position and Size menu within properties, the height box is grayed out, as is the keep ratio box, so neither can be changed. How do I fix this?

Please help, Jon.

Hello @jon_r,

while in the Position & Size dialog, uncheck the checkbox "Fit height to text", then the Height box and the Keep Ratio box become active.

HTH, lib
