i did the change in each text box, but started with the first. is this 
implying that it will work correctly if i started at the last text frame ?
also, i can't remember now, but if i reset the font size on the text frame it 
still did the same thing, i still think its a bug!!

but i love 1.1.6, the more i explore its capabilities the happier i am!!
