Hi. I read the only way to scale using specific values is by applying for.ex. =/2 within the dimension box. 

It works for me, sometimes it does and sometimes it does not. Is this a bug or I am missing something ? 

Sometimes I need to select my lines and de-select them and then select them again. Now is not working regardless of what I do. 

 

Any insights about this? Not other method to scale by a number/percentage? 

Thanks

You can enter 50% in a dimension box.

• I never entered the = , and I have not experienced a calculation that did not work.
• Make sure to keep a space before (or after) your entry and the existing.
• Ignore and don't type the unit, unless you want to make a calculation in a different unit than your current unit.

Where the ‘=‘ sign is required, it needs to go after the operator; e.g. +=2 to add 2 to the current value (instead of setting the value to 2, as +2 would do). So the correct format for division is /2 or /=2, not =/2.

Often needed and used in prog languages for shorter typing expressions. - In Affinity these are (more or less) supported ...

Sizing expression examples

Use when resizing a document or transforming an object via the Transform panel.
