Scaling/transforming doesn't work on group containing text.

Recommended Posts

Hey guys,

I was recently designing a brochure in Publisher and I was simply trying to scale a group but for whatever reason it was not working how I thought it should work.

Example - I had 2 placed images, a vector curve and some copy and headline text in a group. I wanted to scale the group proportionally and make it bigger, but when I did so the images and the vector curve scaled correctly and the headline text and copy pretty much stayed the same size. No matter which way I tried to do this it didn't work...I just ended up doing this manually (scaling the text manually and separately even though the headline and text was in a group) not sure what I'm doing wrong but I hope it's a simple fix..... 

This seems like a basic thing to be able to do (works in Indesign haha)

Thanks in advance.

It seems to be. What if you select all objects (no need to group) and use the outer handle in the bottom right corner to scale them?
