Text generator text box size

When I open the Legacy Text Generator from a text event (via 'Generated Media' button on event), the box with all the controls opens with the text in a box of a fixed size within the text generator window. I can't see any way to increase the size of this box which contains the text. Is there a way to increase its size so I can see all the text at once when using larger fonts? (v11)

No. It is the size that it is.

Why? Preview is still working at any time.

Yes it is...but it would be nice to see all the text, and selections to be made, in the text box...rather than have to scroll to find the bit you want...

Renton, I agree. It's often hard to select large chunks of text the way things are now. What would be even cooler would be if you could edit text on the preview window the same way you can now move it around :-)

Sony change Vegas?! Lol, that would be novel. And yes I agree, simply enlarging the box = window would be helpful. But that's not Sony
