Resizing Objects

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

Dragging the Bounding Box

To resize an object interactively you need to see its bounding box, so you must select it with the Selection tool rather than the Direct Selection tool. When you drag a side handle with the Selection tool it resizes it in one dimension—horizontally or vertically. When you drag a corner handle, you resize it in both dimensions.
