so I tried and make my balloons a box and a costume size of 1.0inch and this does not seem to be working
Ok, first look in the text field in your screenshot. The 'upper' option is set to File Name, as in use the file name of whatever the bubble is attached to. Second, the custom size of 1 inch seems to be working perfectly. It is just that your file names are not actually 1 inch.
Are you trying to make the bubble fit the text? Then you need to use the 'Tight Fit' option. And the style does not matter much.
yeah I wanted file name and the tight fit works thanks
The user defined size does not appear to be available for all Shapes.
with the Field grayed out, some default will be used
