Controlling the Scale

Place a shape and symbol side by side on your Stage. Now select the shape and press Q to enable the Free Transform Tool. Grabbing any handle and dragging will cause the shape to scale in the direction of the handle chosen while anchoring itself at the handle on the opposite side. If you want the shape to scale from the center point, you can hold down the ALT key. You can also hold down the SHIFT key while dragging to ensure that it scales the same amount in every direction. Now select the symbol and then press Q and you’ll notice that the ALT key has the opposite effect on it because by default it scales from the center point of the symbol. The SHIFT key has the same effect on both. Now that you are aware of these little key combos, you can better control how any selected object on your Stage scales.
