Scaling / Resizing is driving me crazy Thread Tools Search this Thread Display Modes
Hi guys,

I just made a stencil. It is a bezier curve. Now I drag this into my document and I want to resize it as a whole shape. I do not want to end up with dragging each of its point to the desired position.

Scaling works for objects like a shape. But for this I can not scale (see attachment). I am expecting the usual drag points for scaling objects.

Maybe I have to make it a compound object like in illustrator or something?

Any ideas?

Thanks a lot!

Welcome to the forums!

Was this shape drawn with the Line tool? If so, that would explain what you're seeing. To create a shape, you'll want to use the Pen tool. The "Drawing your own shapes with the Pen tool" page in the help menu material has some good starter info on how to use it. (Happy to answer more questions here, of course - just know that we spend time on the forums as we're able to on top of our other duties. For need-answer-now stuff, calling (800.315.6664) or emailing will get you a quicker response.)
