Scale with object option for masked objects

Recommended Posts

Sometimes it's a problem to check all masked objects with "scale with object" option as they are not influenced if I select whole group/layer. Is there an option to change that?

 

Thanks,

Anton.

 

upd. I forgot to add that what confuses me here is inconsistency of how scale with object works in comparison with changing thickness — if I select a group/layer and set stroke thickness it works for all objects inside including masked, overriding their previous stats. So I find it weird that "scale with object" doesn't do the same thing.

Hi footof,

 

If you select the group and then click on the fx icon and enable scale with object here does it work for the group, if not can you please send me a sample and I will look into this further.

No, I'm talking not about groups, but about masked objects (objects inside objects) — these are not affected by parent scale option. And this is a ton of work sometimes to check those objects, because I have to select those separately from a parent object.

Hi footof,

I'm not sure i'm understanding your question. Masked and clipped objects should both scale with their parents (size). Their stroke's thicknesses however are independent (it doesn't matter if they are parents or children) and only scale if the option Scale to object is checked for each of them.

My point is, I'd rather have Scale with object affect both parent and child objects, I don't see much reason in not affecting the child objects. I do see it rather one-sided I guess, but it's such painful procedure to check all those checkboxes on a big canvases.

 

I understand that stroke is independent and it works well. However, the Scale with object might be a slightly different case.
