Resizing Objects

Resizing a path or frame changes its horizontal or vertical dimensions. As you’ll see below, resizing is generally done in InDesign the same way as in QuarkXPress. But InDesign offers a few additional ways to resize—or scale as Adobe prefers to call it.

There are both interactive and numeric ways of scaling in InDesign. When using the numeric methods described below (the Transform palette and Scale tool), whether or not the content of a frame also changes depends on whether the Transform Content option is on or off in the Transform palette’s menu. This feature is turned on by default, so any transformation applies to both frame and content; when turned off, the scaling applies only to the frame.
