Scaling a Figure

The Scale By... option can be used to alter figure size based on input coordinates to create a smaller or larger figure spanning over a specific area. It is accessible through the Transform Submenu of the Modify Menu.

To Scale a Figure or group of figures:

  1. Select the figure(s) to be altered.

  2. Select the Modify Menu, choose Transform, and click on Scale By....

  3. Enter the desired X and Y coordinates into the Scale By popup window by using the incremental buttons to the right of each field or by performing a Click/Keyboard entry action.

       

  4. Select or deselect desired options in the Scale By popup window.

  5. Click on the Scale Button when finished.

  6. The selected figure will be scaled according to the entered coordinates and selected options. It will appear in scaled form with the Scale By popup window remaining available to make further changes.

    Note: Scale By... changes can be reverted by using the Undo option under the Edit Menu or with the Command-Z keyboard shortcut.
