Is there a way to resize a rectangle without stretching the pattern?

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone.

Is there a way to resize and rotate a rectangle without stretching the pattern?

I know that if you use the Node Tool, patter says intact, but that's not what I'm looking for,

 

I tried to google an answer to this question, but I couldn't find it. So that's why I'm asking here now.

Can anybody help me?

Sorry that I didn't clarify - I'm talking about bitmap pattern created using Fill Tool.

It's pretty useful tool, but I cannot figure out how to prevent it from stretching the texture.

The Fill tool will "fill" the object. You cannot lock the texture. You will have to work on parent/layers to achieve what you want. :)

 

That sucks, because when it comes to patterns, you don't always want to deform them every time you rotate or resize object.

That does not prevent the transformation matrix of a filled object being applied to the fill.

 

 

Say that again, slowly! xD

Nope. It just locks the bitmap fill (the texture). If you later transform the shape then the pattern will also be distorted.

 

In that case, how can you do it without using a locked child layer as Gabe has suggested? o.O

If you convert to curves and use node edit instead of transform, then the fill is maintained as originally placed. That's the only way I've found to maintain it without having to create a clipping layer for it I'm afraid. Bit of a pain tbh, especially as there is no way that I can see of inputting actual values for the image fill scale. It'd be nice to be able to lock the fill when transforming an object.
