Chapter 4. Nip/Tuck: Selecting, Editing,... > Transform Again and Send to Back

Transform Again and Send to Back

An earlier tip told you not to do any additional operation after transforming an object or the Transform Again command wouldn’t work. Well, here’s one important exception to that rule. You can use the Arrange commands (such as Object>Arrange>Send to Back and Bring to Front) and still retain Transform Again. For example, you scale a circle by Option-clicking (PC: Alt-clicking) on the object with the Scale tool (S) and pressing Copy to make a larger circle. By default, the larger circle will be in front, so use Object>Arrange>Send to Back to reposition the new circle. Then press Command-D (PC: Control-D) to Transform Again (copy and scale the larger circle), and then once again use the Object>Arrange>Send to Back command.
