Ah! some people will be very happy with this :)

I'm sure @jackamus will appreciate it.

Hi MEB,

How embarrassing! I'm only now just downloading it. I will check out the cog feature and report back.

I have now checked out the improved cog feature and it will allow a more realistic gear wheel to be drawn. I'm going to have a few of these to do soon. All we need now is 'EXTRUSION' this will make all these shapes have a new life!

I use dynamic shapes a lot! I think they are great!

 

Is there a way to scale proportionally a dynamic shape that is using absolute values for its properties?

 

E.g. I have a rounded rectangle with 4px rounded corners and when I scale it down either using a percentage or pixel value the corners stay at 4px. I can accomplish proportional values using percentage values for the corners but I would like to use absolute pixel values.

Maybe this is what you are wanting?

Thank you!! I reviewed the videos. Still when using absolute values for dynamic shapes there is apparently no way to resize and keep the proportion. I can achieve this, however, de-selecting "absolute sizes"to use precentage values. 

 

It would be great if the corner tool also had the ability to use percentage values so shapes that have been modified with it can be resized proportionally.
