Resizing

Recommended Posts

When trying to resize a vector object to a small size it distorts the object. What I liked about Illustrator was being able to grab the corner handle and pressing down Shift button to resize the object proportionally. I have tried the Constraint panel and that is not working.

Hi NadoCat,

Welcome to Affinity Forums :)

Press ⇧ (shift) to keep the proportions of the object. If the object you are trying to resize has an intrinsic aspect ratio - like images and text - then there's no need to press ⇧ (shift) - this is the default behaviour (Automatic based on selection). You can customise/change it in Affinity Preferences, Tools section, Move Tool Aspect Constraint dropdown.

 

The Constraints panel serve another purpose: it lets you set the behaviour of objects when placed inside artboards (or other containers) for responsive layouts for example.
