Scaling multiple objects about independent object centers.

Postby sgladfelter » Mon Jun 16, 2014 11:56 am

Does anyone have a trick for scaling multiple objects about each object's individual center point without selecting and scaling each object separately? A common situation might be when you want to raise the font size of text objects, but because their handles have been stretched to a certain size, changing the font size results in the text wrapping to additional lines.

Thanks,

Stephen,

There's a Scale tool in WildTools that does that.
