Thickness of stroke not scaling??

Recommended Posts


I created an octagon using two squares and then trimming off the unwanted parts. I have a fill of purple and a stroke of 5.5 pt in white. I duplicated this octagon and made it slightly larger which sits behind the original, to create a border of white, purple and then white again. The problem seems to be when I scale this down the white strokes don't scale and end up being closer to one another eventually eliminating the purple part of the border. Should I just eliminate the stroke and create a border in a different way?

I've watched many tutorials and that might have been covered but at this point my brain is a bit fried.

In the stroke size/type dropdown on the Context Toolbar with the object selected, tick the box for "Scale with object."
