In Indesign, it would be interesting in the 'text block' to have the option 'Adapt the text to the block'. The option exists for the image block 'to adapt the image to the block proportionally' to adapt this option to the 'text block' would be a saving of time and the possibility to automate a good number of works. For example, to change from A6 to A5 via the linked article system it works great with the image block and not at all with the text block. The only possibility of action with the 'Text block' is to enlarge or reduce it according to the amount of text you want.
I would also like to be able to choose to enlarge or reduce the text in a 'text block' according to the size of the text block and not according to the amount of text that the block can or must receive.
If it can put you on the track this function exists at CorelDraw when one has text in a 'block text' with a right click of the mouse one can adapt the text to the size of 'block text' and according to the amount of text in the text block increases or decreases the text size proportionally in the 'text block'.
In the hope that my need and wish is realized in one of your next update of Indesign.
Please see if using the “Free transform tool” solves your purpose
Just select the object, switch to the Free Transform tool, and place your cursor over one of the corner or side points. When you see the double-headed arrow, drag.
