Obviously, I don't know the steps you took, but if the text (linked or not) is already there, you must select it first, then apply the fit command to see the affect.
If you click with existing text that's not selected, the command will only apply to where the cursor is and to text added from there.
In other words, it's a character-level command, not a note-level one, so like bold and italics, you can apply this effect anywhere and anytime within a single note entity.
To apply this easier when setting up, I add dummy text to the property (if it's blank by default) so I can select it and be sure it's what I'm after.

I hope I understood your post and that this helps.
Thank you for the reply Kevin. I had tried that as well. What i'm really looking for is a note box that can be defined in length and width. Then when you add the text it's size and length adapt to the size of the box.
I feel like the problem is when the text is imported in from the solid model it uses its own text settings or reverts back to the initial text settings of a note.
I have been able to define the box so that it holds its width, but it still continues to expand down to fit text size.
Any other ideas?
thank you again,
The closest I can think of is setup your text to fit. Select the text, then on the left check the "Wordwrap" and "Fit Text".
There have been quite a few requests for the fit function in notes to correctly work, as they do not. The problem comes when the text is customized. It is hit or miss whether the fit function acts correctly.
