Add new option to Transform Objects Separately

Recommended Posts

Add the ability to resize multiple objects to a single size.

For example, when the "Transform Objects Separately" option is enabled, add the checkbox «[ ] Each», to make all selected objects take a single size from the «Transform» panel.Transform-each_1.png.ce3ab9dd187145bb9831072c09f6b2fb.png


So far, in the current versions, objects resize relative to the selected object.

Perhaps it should be called "Local Transform

I used to assume that this must work through some kind of equation in the input fields, in the Transform panel.

I don't think the current functionality makes sense. There's a straightforward approach that does.

If you're clicking around on the canvas, selecting a bunch of objects that you want to change the size of, why does the Transform panel show the dimensions of the bounding box that surrounds the whole collection of objects? That's not a "thing" to be resized. If the objects were grouped, then they would be a thing and that thing would have dimensions. Therefore, grouped vs. ungrouped should determine what's displayed in the transform panel.

When multiple ungrouped objects are selected, the Transform panel (and any other) should show an empty field (or "-") wherever the objects' properties differ. This is standard practice in software, which allows the user to enter a value and have it applied to all of the objects. When you see a blank field, it tells you in an instant that the objects don't match in size (or color, or font...), which is useful information that helps you detect mistakes or oversights in your work.

All we need to do is choose the Transform Objects Separately in the Context Toolbar.


Mac Pro (Late 2013) Mac OS 12.7.1 
Affinity Designer 2.2.1 | Affinity Photo 2.2.1 | Affinity Publisher 2.2.1 | Beta versions as they appear.

I have never mastered color management, period, so I cannot help with that.

That button has a different approach then this feature request thread. The existing button neither allows to

• set objects of different size or angle to 1 certain common value nor to
• add/subtract 1 absolute amount to multiple objects of different sizes or angles.
