Vector scale and moving

Recommended Posts

Two problems that, for use of Affinity Designer in technical illustration, I would like to see resolved: 1) What is the best way to scale (resize) an object, say up or down a certain percentage? Do you have to do the math and enter new values in the width/height edit boxes in the Transform studio panel? 2) What is the best way to move an object a certain distance in a certain direction? Again, do you need to do the addition/subtraction and enter the calculated values in the X/Y boxes of the Transform panel?

Thanks for assistance!!

Just enter 120%  in the W or H box and it will scale to 120%. (make sure the link button is on so it scales in both directions).

In the Y box, enter y-20 to move it 20 pixels up, or y+20 to move it 20 pixels down.

Remember, if you click on the View Tool (the Hand) you can change document units on the Context Toolbar.

Thank you! I couldn't find this in online help. Documentation (or UI) might be improved to make this feature more easily found.
