How to Resize Objects

Print this Topic Previous pageReturn to chapter overviewNext page

To resize one or more objects with the mouse:

1.Select the objects.
2.Move the mouse cursor to one of the eight solid sizing handles around the selection until a Sizing cursor ( Sizing Northeast-Southwest Cursor, Sizing Northwest-Southeast Cursor, Sizing North-South Cursor or Sizing East-West Cursor ) appears.
3.Drag the sizing handle in or out to resize the selected objects.

Dragging a corner handle lets you change both the width and height of the object. Dragging a side handle only changes the object's size in one dimension.

For help selecting objects, see How to Select Objects.

When more than one object is selected, resizing the selection also can change the Line Width and Font Point Size. For more information, see Position.

Text objects are sized specially as described below.
