Qlik Sense - Fonts in a Text box object look smaller in June 2017

Qlik Sense administrator upgrades to June 2017+ and notice that text box's fonts are smaller than what it was in previous version ( e.g. Qlik Sense 3.1.X)
This is due to a fix done for bug# QLIK-73301- "Scroll bars in 3.1.x for text and image visualization object" . On versions before June 2017, Text objects had a scroll-bar which added more expansion within the object, this allowed to scale out the fonts because within the object it had more space to do so.
In June 2017, this bug was fixed, which removes the scroll-bar and the ability to expand within the object and now the fonts need to scale in proportion to fit the text within the Text object.
This is an expected behavior due to bug fixes regarding scaling of Text & Image Boxes. Adjust the size of the text and image box to allow the text to scale in proportion. Additionally, check for any unneeded line breaks in the visualization object.
