Use the Constraints panel.


You'll never know what you can do until you get it up as high as you can go!

If this is what you want to do, as I said, you can use Constraints. If you don't find the panel, go to View > Studio > Constraints. Here is a little example:

 

  • Select the children.
  • You will see the white arrows.

  • Click on them until they look like this.

  • Now you can resize the container without changing the size of the inner object.

Best regards!

Hi Resimovic,

Welcome to Affinity Forums :)

Can you please attach the file with the objects you are trying to resize (you can delete the rest) so we can see what type of objects are you working with and their layer structure?

Thanks.

Ok, solution with Constrain panel resolve my problem THX

I'v try this but same result as unlocked, child is resizing anyway

Unlocking the child layers does prevent them from being resized when the parent is resized, but I now see that is not really what you were trying to do.

 

Glad you got it sorted out.
