Resizing

You can change the size of any line or group of lines in your drawing, resizing horizontally, vertically or both. For example you might need to enlarge your entire drawing.

To resize a line or group of lines:
  1. Select the line or group of lines.
  2. Drag the appropriate selection handle to the desired location or choose Line | Transform | Scale and enter a numerical percent. Holding the CTRL key while resizing provides for exact resizing to double size, triple size, etc. Holding the SHIFT key resizes from the center point.

Resizing arcs or circles using the middle handles will convert those lines into splines, generating a warning. It is generally more cost effective to avoid splines.
