Any larger than 3000pts you have to convert to curves and scale from there.
There used to be a 3,000 pt limit, but it was removed some versions ago.Maybe it is still there in the Mac version, I don't know, but it is possible to go way higher in the Windows version.The limit now seems to be around 608,000 pt, but then you will no longer be able to see the text because it doesn't fit inside the maximum drawing area.

Some parts of CorelDRAW enforce a 3000 pt limit for font size.
The font size box (e.g., in the Property bar, or in the Text toolbar) DOES allow one to directly set font sizes larger than 3000 points. If that is done, though, the font size will not be displayed correctly in the Properties docker or the Text docker (which do not allow larger than 3000 points).
I don't think that scaling can be used to increase the font size to greater than 3000 pt.
If I try to scale an Artistic text shape, then a 3000 pt font size limit is enforced.
It's kind of a mess.
My experience is limited to the Windows version.
This right John, never noticed that before you can't scale above 3000pts but you can use the Text Docker to specify a larger point size. Go figure! This 2018 I am using.
Strange. My tests were made from Property Bar, and I can type and probably also get (a little hard to see because the text exceeds maximum drawing area several times :-) ) font sizes up to 608,735.522 pt.But 50,000 pt for example, no problem.As you say though, the Text docker reverts to 3,000 and it is not possible to drag to any larger size, it instantly jumps back to 3,000.
The Command found in the Property Bar appears to have some superpower to set font sizes larger than 3000 points.
An attempt to set a font size larger than 3000 points using a VBA macro produces this error:
I think I may have found another bug.
