Scaling Points

The points of an object can be scaled relative to each other. While this technique is not used often, it can be useful in certain situations.

Before points can be scaled, the Edit Points button must be pressed to turn on point editing mode. See Editing Points for more information.

To scale points:

1.   Click the Scale tool that is found to the left of the screen, or press the S key.

2.   Hold the Shift key and click each of the points you want to scale to select them. More than one point should be selected.

3.   Click and hold the left mouse button on one of the points, then move the mouse to scale all selected points. Or press Enter to scale the points manually.


    In most cases, it is easier to scale the entire object instead of scaling points. For more information, see Scaling Objects.

    Points will automatically snap to the grid when grid snap is enabled. See Snap Settings for details.

    The Scale tool can also be used to adjust Bezier curves. For more details on Bezier curves, see Editing Points.
