resize text box without reflowing text - Macromedia Freehand

I have some text that I need to paste in from Word. When I paste it into the existing text box, there's too much text for the text box. So I want to increase the size of the text box, but when I do that, the text line spacing (leading) changes, and I still don't get the rest of the text displayed in the text box. How do I do this? Help only explains how to reduce a text box size. Thanks....

    Default resize text box without reflowing text

    I have some text that I need to paste in from Word. When I paste it into the
    existing text box, there's too much text for the text box. So I want to

    (leading) changes, and I still don't get the rest of the text displayed in
    the text box. How do I do this? Help only explains how to reduce a text box
    size.

    Thanks.

    Look for the Help topic "Converting fixed-size or auto-expanding text
    blocks".

    Double-click on a text block's center bottom handle to make it auto-expand
    downwards. Look for the little box hanging off the lower right corner of a
    text block. If it's filled with solid color, there's more text that's not
    displaying.

    Dragging on a corner of a text block will also resize the block.

    Ellen,
    As Judy mentioned, grap a *corner* handle to resize the text block. The
    bottom center handle adjusts line spacing and the right center handle
    adjusts letter spacing (also word spacing if you hold down the Opt/Alt key
    while dragging).
