Resizing Objects

A number of commands can be used to modify existing objects. The commands that can be used to resize objects are SCALE, STRETCH, LENGTHEN, TRIM, EXTEND, and BREAK, all of which are covered in this section. These commands are located on both the Modify toolbar and the Modify pull-down menu.

Scaling Objects

The SCALE command is used to scale objects up or down in size. This command employs the general selection process, which gives you many options for selecting the objects. After selecting the objects to be scaled, you are prompted to pick a base point. You then can enter a scaling factor or graphically pick a distance, or you can specify the Reference option. When you graphically scale the selection set, the length of the rubberband line is used as the scaling factor.
