Did anyone experience the problem when trying to expand the parent node (ex: textureRect, colorRect,...) the text inside got stretch out as well? How did you fix that?

I think it depends on what the child node is. For example if the child node is a texture rect you can turn on keep aspect in the settings and I think that would fix it. What is your child node?

Any size adjustment you make to a parent node will affect all of its children. If you don't want any of the children nodes to be resized then you'll have to put them under a different parent.

Honestly I think the best way to do this is to increase the size of the parent node in a scene. If your node tree is not its own scene then its probably best to make it its own scene so you can more easily adjust stuff in there
