The Scale Tab allows one to change the width, height, and position of selected shapes and objects.
You can resize objects by dragging the control points or by changing the numerical values found in the Design Central panel on the Scale Tab.

How are you guys in today's video? Flexi starter. We're gonna be looking at the scale tab under the design central panel. Before that, let's have intra first. So today's video can be found on softwaretraining.co.za. Uh, we make sure that easy to watch problem solving videos, and we have daily updates. Otherwise, back in the programme here. Now, just a reminder for you or for those that are new. This is a miniseries on the design central panel just located on the right. And I will leave relevant links in the description. And you can actually follow along now. Yeah, we've covered a few of the tabs already. So today we're gonna be covering the scale tab now with the design central panel. Just keep in mind it is, um, the tags will be displayed on it is relevant to what is selected. As we can see, we've got some texts. So we have different options that the shape Now we have a different options again. And if you want to locate your design central, um, panel, if it's not open, for some reason, it's here next to your undo and redo buttons. Now, when it comes to the scaling. It's rather simple. If you used to using any other form of victor type programme, you'll see it's very similar, So I'm gonna draw a square or a little squarish shape. Now keep in mind that the scale option will only be present with a few different types of things you can select. So, for instance, uh, sector type, shape or path, we will get the options for scaling and location, and with text as well, we will get percent options now under the actual, um, scale panel. Let's just see what they call you. Actually call it the skill panel, but you do get the location as well. So now on top here, we've got with for the obviously horizontal and vertical with so we can actually adjust those Just click these little arrows. As you can see, it scales it at the moment, you'll see I'm setting the with. But the heights also been set, and that is because the proportional scaling, basically or, uh, editing is on. So if I switch that off now, if I just it only the words gets adjusted. As you can see. Same with a height. Another few ways we can set these values as we can click and use your mouse wheel inside the box. Or you can use your up and down arrow keys. You can obviously also double click and put a value of your own custom value. And then it will set those settings for you and then under that we have the location. Now, this is obviously X and Y once again horizontally and vertically. So now you can use the arrows to set it from to the right and to the negative. It goes to the left. So positive, right? Negative left, Uh, this one you'll see, actually the opposite, which I find rather strange. But so I'm positive we'll be going down and negative will be going up. Yeah, Then also, we have this little option here, which will be the stationary point that the scaling will work from. So I'm gonna keep a portion on now. At the moment, as we can see, it's set to the middle. So now if we scale it, it's gonna scale it from the middle of the object selected. So let's say we go the top, right? Perhaps now, when we scale, you can see top right point stays in position, and then you can obviously go middle, right middle left, bottom middle and then likewise. So if you already have your your your shape or so forth lined up, you can always scalar legate relevant. For instance, let's say you've got text selected, but you want to make sure it stays, um, on the same position of the left, or perhaps in our case, the left bottom, and we'll select that bottom one, and then you can actually scale it up, like so. Otherwise that is it. But I'll show. So that is the basics on the scaling tab Design Central. If we head here to softwaretraining.co.za y, you guys will notice we've got a variety of different Softwares we do cover. And also we have a nice little search options so you can actually isolate your search If you're looking for anything specific. Otherwise, if you don't find what you're looking for, you can always go. You requested training video. Then we will make that video for you. But otherwise things guys watching until next one Cheers. Yeah,
