When working with strict measurements for a design, being able to enter exact scales it a must.
You are able to get close to exact scales using the freehand point nodes, but nothing beats exact values.

How are you guys in today's video with True cut already works, we're gonna be looking at how to set the scale of objects and shapes using your cut property bar. But before that, let's have a quick intro offers. Mm, So today's video can be found on softwaretraining.co.za. We make short and easy to watch problem solving videos, and we also have daily updates. Otherwise, we're back in the programme here now, just a quick reminder. This is a miniseries on the cut property bar, and I will also leave relevant links in the description. So you guys gonna should follow them along now when it comes to setting the scale of this shape or object, Um, there's different ways to go about it. Obviously, just scale it by grabbing these points. But let's say you needed more exact measurements. So if you're working on a strict design and they are telling you this part of the shape as we exactly the scale because it has to fit on, let's say a window or something in that line, then you would want to use your cut properly bar to set the scale now, the cut property bar is located on the top left here. You can, uh, set its visibility by going to view cut property bar. And he's got a right mark. That right market is not there like a year. Then it will not be visible when you simply just click on it and we'll bring it back. Now, do you see the scale we will see next to the location we've got these two little arrows shows an arrow in both directions that we're setting the scale. So we've got horizontal and vertical scale, and then it is in millimetres. Now, something to keep in mind about this. It's obviously you will have to have a shape selected that you want to scale as we change shape so you can see the scale. They're also changes. So if I have this shape selected and let's say we want to round this off, then you can simply go type of exact values you want. So I'm just gonna remove the point here. This is a 14.4, 414 and then we'll make this 300 100 and 39. You remove that press enter. Let's try that again. Okay, So I'm gonna rather just go some balls. It's not liking my measurements. I'm gonna go 400 millimetres. Bye. We've got a lock on. That's why so Australia again. So we go 400 and then this one, I'm gonna make maybe three. What is that? 35 then? I'm just Zuma. Yeah. So now if we click this shape here 135. My apologies. Now we can see we've got exact measurements here, so there's no point. No, you know, extra values behind it. So you can change this to whatever you want. Scale it. Let's maybe make it quite a bit less. Just We can see the update on the canvas so you can see it is actually changing. Now we have a shape here. That is the exact same measurement as what we desire. So if, like I mentioned a client or something wants the exact measurement, this is the way you're gonna do it. So you're not gonna grab here and try scale it to the exact measurement? Because that's gonna be a bit, um, but hard to get the exact measurement that we can see there. It's just added a point decibel. To get this to zero or exact amount is very hard. 420 and then, yeah, we've got our exact scape. Then on the to the right of that, we've got the percentage signs, which is real simple, but we'll cover that in the next video as this one is running a bit long. Otherwise, we had here to softwaretraining.co.za together. Today You guys got a variety of different software to recover, and also you can isolate your search on the top of right. If you do not, however, find the videos you're looking forward. Just go here, request a training video filling the meaning form, and then we'll make that video for you. Otherwise, thanks, guys, for watching and cheers.
