Grouping and Resizing
 
is it possible to link or group two objects and only have one scale on the x or y axis?

I'm trying to make a stencil and have some grouped shapes, such as the html form select menu.

I want the user to be able to add the select menu to the canvas and only resize it horizontally with out distorting the fixed image at the righthand side of the input field.

omnigraffle is a great tool but this feature would make it stellar :)

thanks,
Pat

For any groupings, the first click will select the whole group, but a second click will select just the object below the click (but still as part of the group); a grey shade on the canvas all around the group will indicate that this has happened. You can then modify the attributes of the individual object (including its size) without disrupting the rest of the group, though any connected lines to that shape will also shift if size is altered.

This is what you see when an individual item is selected in the group:
