    Hi,
    I am finding that TLC is not allowing me to stretch text vertically (ie. pulling them taller).
    Is there a way to do this, in TLC?

    Do the coloration and ETC first. Then what I would do is EXPORT the text as a transparent png.Do the coloration and ETC first Then bring it back onto the canvas. As an image file in TC you can have many more options for sizing.

    Of course, if you 'stretch' it, you make it blurry. Make the text as large as you can first, then export as KD suggests. Then when you bring it back in, you shrink it to size and it may not be quite as bad!

    Short answer to your question, no. You cannot 'stretch' text. It is a font. Of course you can use any font installed on your computer, as long as you have the 'rights' to it. Find a FREE font that is taller than wider, install and use it! Lots of sites out there with free fonts.
