How to make a text fit in a perfect square shape in Photoshop (CC)?


I want to write a text that fits in a perfect square shape of a determined size and after some playing with the text tool I can't realize how to do it:

Example with squares

This is what I need, but with the words UP, RIGHT, DOWN, LEFT fiting exactly those square shapes.

Example with text

This is the closest I managed to go, the text box is the size and position I'm looking for, but I don't know how to make the text fill the box, horizontally and vertically. With the transforming tool, the text changes its size but I lose the box size and position as well. Is there any way to keep this text box, while making the text inside fill it?

First of all you must know the square's size (let's say 115px x 115px)

  1. Then you simply click and type each word in a separate text layer.
  2. Right click on each of them and select Convert To Shape
  3. Press Ctrl+T To transform
  4. In the top toolbar you will see the shape's width and height, simply type 155px to both inputs (PS: make sure the Maintain aspect ratio is unchecked).
